Need A Private Chef? There’s An App For That!


On June 1, Savour, a new app that recently launched in New York City, will be available locally. With Savour, consumers can book fine dining chefs for private dinners at their own homes in t he Hamptons. Just like making a reservation at a restaurant, the app allows consumers to pick their date, their chef and their menu in just a few clicks. The roster of chefs is growing as people turn to the app to create their own private events as COVID-19 continues to bring challenges to the restaurant industry.

Current participating chefs represent a diverse selection of cuisine and approaches. Chefs that will be available to book on the East End include Francis Derby (BRG Restaurant, STARR Restaurants, Momofuku, Cannibal), Ashfer Biju (executive chef at The Pierre Hotel and specializing in Indian cuisine), and Lonnie Dyner (formerly of Bond St, River Cafe, Tavern on the Green). Savour currently operates in New York City, Miami, and Los Angeles and will expand to San Francisco this summer.

Savour was built by a team of long-standing hospitality professionals including Ronnie Madra (founder of 1OAK nightclub) and Kristel Arabian (former chef de cuisine at Michelin starred Joe’s Restaurant in Los Angeles and owner of Kitchen Culture Recruiting, a leading chef recruiting agency). Familiar with how restaurants and nightlife operate, they took their expertise to build an app with functionality and ease that simulates the joy of a dining experience out. Each chef on the app has multiple menu experiences guests can book, for various party sizes (capped at six currently because of COVID guidelines). For more information visit or download the app.
