WELCOME to our new location of Chill. Please know that you are part our dream that is coming true, right here - right now.
This business started back in January 2011 down the street as a little coffee shop called “Steam.” With a used Craig’s List espresso machine, a couple of butane camp stove burners, auction furnishings, Kahwa coffee and crazy popular muffins this new life began. Within weeks Steam started serving full breakfast and within a few months Chill opened for dinner in the adjoining space. Somewhat accidental restauranteurs, owners Ruthie & Paul Buxbaum were often in awe of the business growth. The magic ingredient of Grace AND at least a million hours of blood, sweat & tears had catapulted this blended American family into one of the toughest businesses ever. A small business. A family business. A restaurant.
Looking back over the past 5 years, this has been a journey not to miss. Voted 2012 Business of the Year, Chill has had their share of mountain tops & heartbreaks. Isn’t that the American Dream? To overcome obstacles, persevere, and recommit each day to becoming our best. Ruthie says that for her, the experience of Chill has been a love affair - a passionate love affair with food, flavors, hospitality, customers, friends & an ever growing family. In barely a blink, somehow we ended up here, in this gorgeous new building with a nearly perfect kitchen, the most successful culinary team we have ever dreamed of having on board, and the sincerest desire to serve you the best food we are capable of…
One thing that our owner Ruthie says is what she loves best about Chill is that she always knows friends are coming over for dinner...she just doesn’t know which ones. Our philosophy is this: if you were planning a big party at home for very special guests, you would clean up all day! You would shop carefully for each ingredient & find the freshest produce possible. You would greet your friends warmly with enthusiasm. You would cook each item carefully. You would be grateful to cater to their every need. Then you would give each one a warm hug goodbye. And, if you are blessed, they will come again. We strive to live this each day, each meal, one day at a time.
