Bettaso is a place defined by our main philosophy. Which is to keep things simple, tasty and create a home-like cozy atmosphere for our Restaurant’s visitors.
Coming to us for a lunch or a dinner should feel just as comfortable, as having one at home. The simplicity, freshness and reasonable pricing for our dishes just underlines how home-like our Restaurant is..
Meet our team
Bettaso is a family owned Restaurant, which treasures the atmosphere just as much as the dining menu. We assembled a strong team of professionals, all of whom aspire to constantly excel and step it up!
This team has been assembled coming from absolutely different backgrounds. It’s most noticeable when we compare Mary and her two sous chefs. Mary’ been studying and working the art of cooking in Paris while Thomas and Simon had a more local experience in the US Restaurants.
Both Simon and Thomas came from a more local experience of contemporary, mixed American cuisine.
These differences help them to work incredibly efficiently as one team.
They compliment each other’s experiences and skills! Together in this cooking collaboration, they created our unique, diverse menu as it is.
We’re really proud to recognize that this menu is a truly modern take on food. A menu, where there are national dishes from different countries, mixed up and adapted to an American contemporary setting.
Even more importantly, each of our culinary talents focuses within their own specific kitchen department…
Like Thomas Palmer does, giving Mary and Simon a hand when it comes to desserts. And no one cooks those mouth-watering, delightful desserts better than him!
All in all, we very much owe to Bettaso’s team diversity and the teamwork we have here. These ingredients make us the best
Being 5 years younger, than our Chef Mary, Simon is already skilled enough. Being a cook for more than 10 years in multiple Restaurants of Virginia, he’s now a part of our Restaurant’s team. His duty is a full control over the kitchen and the staff, as well as responsibility for food’s quality.
Mary is the most experienced chef in our culinary team. She graduated from Parisian Culinary school 15 years ago and since then only excelled her skills. Now she has 2 sous-chefs to assist her. They help her cook our dishes as good as only possible
Desserts sous chef
Thomas began his cooking career in his native Poland 10 years ago. For the last 5 years he works at our place, delivering amazing meat and fish dishes to our guests. There were many instances people called him up to say “thank you” personally!
