BRT has been entertaining and delighting people and palates for decades. As a San Francisco Bay Area native, Brandon derives inspiration from the fertile soil and rich bounty Northern California has to offer. Both parents come from a farming background, and as such, Brandon grew up knowing only organic home grown produce, this appreciation for veggies is carried through into his California World Fusion style of cuisine. During a study abroad program in Siena, Italy, he first developed his taste for wine, and upon returning to U.C. Davis immersed himself in all things Viticulture. In 2007, BRT moved to San Francisco proper to learn all there was to learn in all aspects of the restaurant industry, and study all of the worldly cusine this 7x7 Mecca has to offer. In 2009, BRT joined the Court of Sommeliers and then began a 6 year tenure in wine sales, importing, distribution, and mechandising. In 2015, Brandon launched BRTable, where he serves out his passions as a private chef, personal sommelier, and full service event planner.
