Brian and Eric Isaac, who were raised in Batesville, Arkansas, go way back in the kitchen. As the result of a deal made with their mother when Eric was 13 and Brian 15, the boys were responsible for cooking the family meals. Eric had an affinity with cooking from the start: his first meal for the family: southern fried chicken, steamed broccoli, and fettuccini alfredo.
During college Eric worked in a succession of restaurants in the Little Rock area. Eric was first exposed to fine dining when he was hired to work as sous chef at now defunct Cassinelli 1700 under Jeff Medbury. After a year or so as sous chef, Cassinelli's sponsored his training at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners in Costigliole d' Asti, Italy. Eric landed an internship at Cảpeo, an acclaimed ristorante on the Italian Riviera in Leivi, Italy. When his training was complete, he returned to the United States to assume the executive chef position at Cassinelli 1700.
Within weeks of his return from Italy, Eric received a five star review from the Arkansas Times and a perfect review from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. After the Vino e Cucina food show in New York City, Eric received an invitation to become a member of the highly acclaimed James Beard House, and to team up with three chefs from New York City to serve a dinner labeled "Great Italian Chefs". This dinner was reminiscent of a dinner Eric hosted at Cassinelli 1700 called "Traveling Toques" in which famed chefs Roberto Donna, Michele Orsino and Vittorio Capparelli along with Isaac received rave reviews for a charity dinner.
The brothers invite you to come in, relax, break the bread and enjoy some wine.
