Our post of 12-8 was for Gogi’s Restaurant and their pumpkin flan. As we mentioned, Chef Gabriel Murphy runs the kitchen and Jonoah Murphy runs the front of the house including the bar. This post will feature Gabriel’s Holiday Martini that he developed for us. The entire Hill team enjoyed this–it was like a dessert.
