Meet our Managing Partners!
Two years ago, we were so very lucky that husband-and-wife team Tracy Lindskoog &
her husband Dennis Bernard wanted to move here from Chicago to be closer to their
families. Tracy and Dennis worked for the highly respected – James Beard Award
winning – Blackbird Restaurant Group in Chicago before joining us. I will tell you that as
an employee, I have so much respect for both of them. They have a great passion for
the restaurant industry and take their job seriously but also have fun while doing it.
Tracy is kind, sensible and a great listener. Any of you who have had a chance to talk
with her at The Pig know how genuine and sincere she is. She never micro-manages
the staff and trusts them in their ability to take care of the guests. She’s truly a breath of
fresh air in the restaurant industry.
Dennis is funny, always calm, respected by all of the staff and he’s such a talented chef
that I’m personally excited to see what he’s going to do now that he’s running the
kitchen at Cask & Larder. While working under Paul Kahan in Chicago, Dennis, ran the
charcuterie program at The Publican and earned the title “Best New Brunch” from
Time Out Chicago Magazine. Combine Dennis’ talent with James’ and the team they
have put together……I have tried all of the food and this place is going to rock!
