Our Staff

You may recognize a few of these faces from the show, "Undercover Billionaire" and you may even bump into them at the restaurant from time to time. This is our team of Underdogs! 




Ashley Messenger

General Manager/Kitchen Manager/Owner

Born and raised as an Erie-ite! When not working in the kitchen, she is spending time with friends, families, her rabbits and chinchillas. You also might catch her fishing off the dock or playing video games. Spending a decade in the hospitality industry and being an alumni from Mercyhurst University, she has always had a passion for cooking and sharing it with others. She intends that any meal that she prepares be not just food on a plate, but an experience that keeps you coming back for more. She strives to not simply cook food, but to create crave-able memories.
