John and Wanda Gonzales have a long-held dream to create a destination where people
go to eat fine, inspired food, learn about food and food preparation and be
entertained. A Chef’s Kitchen is the culmination of that dream.
Located at 501 Prince George Street in the heart of downtown Williamsburg,
A Chef’s Kitchen offers the novel opportunity to learn how to make the recipes for
a multi-course dinner while also being served the complete meal paired with
"great find" wines.
John Gonzales, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY,
has been in the food and beverage industry for thirty years. His impressive resumé
includes executive chef positions at the Watergate Hotel, the Jockey Club and the
