The concept of Alba began as an effort to create a restaurant that not only uses high quality, locally produced foods, but also offers contemporary wholesome cuisine in a sophisticated yet comfortable setting. At Alba, Sean’s contemporary cuisine focuses on seasonal ingredients. Dishes are simply prepared and cooked over a state-of-the-art wood-burning grill. This allows the true flavors of the food to stand out while being enhanced by a live hickory and mesquite wood fire, a concept found throughout the countryside of Europe. Travel has always been a major interest in the Weinberg’s lives and has consequently been an important influence on their views of food and culture.
