Hemingway’s is pleased to announce the arrival of Chef Charles Coe as General Manager of the restaurant. Chef Charles is passionate about cooking and creating memorable dishes that are made from the finest ingredients available. “This is my life. I invest about 140 hours a week into this. I love the restaurant business. I tell everyone this isn’t for everyone but this is for me. You’re not opening a can; you’re devoting hundreds of hours a week. And that’s what it’s about. We have a great opportunity in this restaurant,” states Coe. A certified green chef in the state of Florida, Chef Charles plans to bring that concept to Hemingway’s. New menus are being prepared and will be introduced in the coming weeks. “The menus will be constantly evolving based on what’s available. I think that you have to concentrate on finding the best ingredients and focus on how you prepare them,” says Coe.
