Executive chef Steven Devereaux Greene blends his sophisticated style and passion for local foods with his dream of operating an Asian-inspired restaurant. Drawn to the kitchen at age 16, Greene’s innate talent was noticed by French chef Pascal Hurtebize while they worked together at Marigold Market in Greenville, S.C.
