The Eat Well
My path to The Eat Well has been a unique journey. After I finished high school, I lived in New Orleans and worked in French restaurants at the front of the house. With most of my friends being chefs, they taught me some of their techniques.
I then left the business to open up a massage center in New York for close to 10 years before my wife Martha and I decided to move to Cumberland County and open a massage center in West Cape May. My wife Martha now operates The Well Cape May
I couldn't shake the feeling that I wanted to be in the restaurant business. I began searching for places to open a sandwich shop and eventually found a spot at the Akroteria in Cape May.
I got inspired by the movie 'Chef' with Jon Favreau where he had a little food truck and was doing Cuban sandwiches. That's what I wanted to do at the Akroteria. I don't want 300 things on my menu. I just want to have a nice simple menu that I can make every day and do well.
I then went on to purchase the property on Townbank Road and created The Eat Well.
I believes that food should be as fresh as possible. We make the artisan bread ourselves on the premises and uses it for the grilled cheese sandwiches.
We are committed to making and serving fresh homemade foods. We strive to use the freshest most local ingredients we can find. When possible we will grow our own. We maintain a small herb garden that we can use in our recipes
We do not buy breads* for any of our dishes all breads are made from scratch.
*Gluten free bread excepted
