Zach Sterner, chef
Zach has been cooking professionally for 23 years. From small mom and pop restaurants in Sonoma County, to sous chef at Michelin starred Solbar at Solage, Calistoga. In between, he was also a baker and a private chef.
What comes out of the kitchen is truly a labor of love.
The menu is always changing seasonally and from all types of cuisine. We source local ingredients when possible as well as local craft beers and wine. We get asked "where do you buy your sauce or where do you buy your bread, baked goods and desserts?" The answer is simple...we don't. Most everything is made from scratch, in house. Some of our prep takes days, weeks and sometimes months to create flavors that you couldn't achieve otherwise. We believe that is the only way to truly achieve great cuisine.
Our menu is kept "small" to insure freshness and the ability to create all of our products from scratch. We believe this makes your dining experience unique and exciting and what sets us apart from other restaurants in the area.
Twelve 28 Kitchen is a small, family owned and run business. Owned and operated by Zach's parents, Michael (your host), and Laurie (baker/pastry chef) and siblings, Max, Allie and Emily who offer helping hands wherever they can Our family is passionate about delicious food, good beer, good wine and good people!
We' are honored to share this experience with you!
