Meet our team

Small team, tons of talent & decades of experience. Thank you for stopping by and here is a little information about who our team is!

CHARACTER Distinctive Dining is a modern expression of the American Dinner House.  That being said, it maintains a constant connection to the history of ‘Fine Dining’, as well as the countless influences of global cuisine, oftentimes utilizing innovative cooking techniques.  Housed in an early 1900s home and surrounded by a modern outdoor patio, CHARACTER serves dinner nightly, featuring an eclectic wine list and inventive drink list to pair with the ever-changing cuisine.  Expect a memorable entertainment experience when you visit CHARACTER. 

ALIAS is a fun-sized modern speakeasy tucked just behind CHARACTER that is opening up after the start of the new year.  While not a total mystery to find ALIAS, the walk along the sidewalk and around the back still gives a nod to what a real speakeasy represents.  Three nights a week, Master of Mixology, Richie, and Chef Justin ‘Red’ Hauska offer a Molecular Mixology/Gastronomy dinner, pairing cocktails and food by way of science and whimsy (think of an entire 12-course menu manipulated by sound – and that’s just a tease). Coming soon, following the dinners, ALIAS will morph into a Craft Cocktail bar from 9ish until 2am.  In time, the Craft Cocktail bar may expand to additional nights.
