Executive Chef Michael Greenwood is a Classically trained Chef and is a Local of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  He has traveled the world and has been fortunate enough to train under the best chefs in the culinary world.  Over the course of his travels, he apprenticed for Master Chef Philipe Chin in Augusta Georgia where they had the great honor of cooking for the Masters Golf Tournament.  Chef Greenwood also journeyed to Europe for a few years mastering the art of classic French Cuisine.

Soon after his return from Europe, Chef Greenwood came home to Maryland to implement his new skills as Executive Chef at Sotto Sopra in Baltimore Maryland.  He has spent the last 5 years as executive Chef at Latitude 38 Bistro in Oxford Maryland.  His expertise helped to create one of the best restaurants in the county.
