The menu is filled with unexpected flavor combinations like Honeynut Squash Soup. Duck & Foie Gras Empanada, Mushroom and Leek Toast and CORN Flour Crusted Fritto Misto. “My inspiration for the curation of the menu comes from my family, my global travels, and the professional kitchens I grew up in,” Vargas said of the menu creation process. “For example, Everdene’s Duck Empanada and Fritto Misto, which is spiced with a mixture of toasted cumin, coriander, and black pepper, both were inspired by my travels to Ecuador. Every ingredient that I utilize in my cooking speaks to a moment in my culinary past, and I look for ways to reimagine it and make it my own.”

The menu is also filled with influences from Vargas’s own culinary experiences. “I wanted some items on the Everdene menu to highlight my father’s cooking and my roots while drawing from my professional Italian cooking background,” Vargas told us. “Additionally, I recently took a trip to Guayaquil, Ecuador, that influenced some of the ingredients on the menu.”
