Founding Member and CEO, Moses has been in the hospitality business for nearly a decade spent as a Sous Chef, Smokehouse Pit Master, and Kitchen Manager. His culinary travels took him through World Of Beer - Stamford, The Hilton Garden Inn - Milford, Dinosaur Barbecue - Stamford, and Prime: An American Kitchen & Bar - Stamford (Owned by Bohlsen Restaurant Group or "BRG" which has been awarded with an International Star Diamond Award from The American Association Of Hospitality Sciences). While pursuing his dreams, he stumbled upon the the craft bartending world and instantly became infatuated. Shortly, Moses would be behind the bar.
Bar after bar, competition after competition, Moses honed his skills through trial and error, and attempt after error. Determined to sharpen his skills and develop an acumen, he became a student of award-winning celebrity bartender Carl Summa at Diageo North America. After an intensive class offered by Diageo North America, in conjunction with CT Bartenders Academy, Moses possessed the knowledge, the skill, and the technique, he desired. "SOS Luxury" is a culmination of mastering one's craft in order to give another one's best. With that in mind, Moses offers you, the spirit industry, and the craft world, our best.

Most notably so at Polpo Restuarant & Saloon, The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges, Le Marais Steak House Times Square Manhattan, Bohlsen Restaurant Group's Prime: An American Kitchen & Bar (Stamford), and Michelin Star winner Michael White's Campagna.
Chef Nathan has also competed on Food Network's Chopped, and started his formal studies towards becoming a sommelier. With an attitude to match his food, we can't wait for you to experience his excellence. Bon appetit!
