With the kitchen behind the counter, chef Mike Price relishes his new role: cooking coach. Last Fall he found himself inviting a customer into the kitchen to show her how to sear a fish he’d sold her: “That’s the deal behind this place,” he says.

Bargain Shopping Know-how

Mike Price: “A lot of people buy more than they need and end up wasting food. Unless you’re planning on leftovers, you only need to shop for two to three days at a time.”
