a young man preparing food in a kitchen

Colin Shine


You could spot him back in the kitchen perfecting a gumbo. Or balancing the flavors of the daily feature with those wonderful fennels he carefully selected at the Eastside Farmer's Market. Or discussing with his brother Chris the perfect pairing for the next wine dinner. He's Chef Colin Shine, the artisan behind our imaginative reinterpretation of classic Americana cuisine, the guardian of all our culinary secrets, and the youngest of the Shine clan. 

With a passion for food that roots back to Grandma's table, he has polished all of our family's recipes and makes Frank's Americana Revival & White Star Bar a true destination for classic regional favorites, contemporary Americana creations, and farmers-market-inspired dishes - all stemming from our Irish and American heritage.
