Who We Are.

Michael Luther – Executive Chef & Owner

Chef Mike took what was once a rabid hobby of culinary creations, and honed his skills in the commercial kitchen after 20 years of finance. First, it was with Red Cedar Grill. Luther delivered again with a masterfully dynamic + playful menu at Bridge Street Social, drawing from influences and loves from Italy, Greece, Spain, Morocco, and the Southwest U.S.

Always seeking new flavors, Chef Mike is redrawing the menu, often as quickly as every 6 weeks.
