The Galleon Restaurant
The Galleon Restaurant at Green Cay Marina will be handing over its famous cuisine to a chef who's been specializing in fine dining.
Hailing from Cumberland, Maine, Kenneth Biggs is committed to quality products, perfect cooking techniques, and flavors that are exactly right. He has maintained extremely high standards at Star Boggs in Westhampton Beach, L. I., as Chef de Cuisine, at the French bistro Amelia's on Nantucket, and at the Regatta of Falmouth on Cape Cod.
"When I realized that cooking was my passion, I pursued an education in Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R. I.," says Ken. "With years of experience in the restaurant business, I am able to uphold the standards that The Galleon has always been known for, utilizing my classical French training and techniques and Southern European influences to embellish an exciting menu and provide a well-rounded dining experience."
"I put my all into each dish I create, striving to achieve that perfect balance each time of a combination of flavors, textures and also aesthetics, making each plate a true work of art. I try to do something different when playing with foods and favors to create new and different things for my customers to enjoy." The Galleon's dinner menu offers favorites like classic Osso Bucco, The Galleon, filet mignon topped with a lobster medallion, and Chateaubriand, still carved tableside, along with house-made pastas, fresh local fish. The bar menu offers lighter fare with tantalizing appetizers or the new Galleon Burger.
Brunch has become a favorite with classic dishes like Eggs Benedict and Grand Marnier- spiked French toast, and specials including lobster omelets with arugula and ricotta cheese, Galleon Huevos Rancheros and house-made corned beef hash.
Galleon owner, Lesley Morrison says, "In my nine years at The Galleon, I feel so celebrated to be working with this caliber of chef who can so easily pair his culinary cuisine with our award-winning Wine Spectator wine list. Business is definitely up due to the reviews and buzz on the island about this chef. I would love to welcome everyone out this season to try our new cuisine."
