“I have a passion for enjoyable comfort food with a fine dining twist. I believe in paying attention to what's local, fresh, and exciting while always experimenting with regional cuisines, and adding my own personal touch.  My only responsibility is to the guest and to ensure their experience is second to none  and every dish that leaves my kitchen needs to be perfect in an effort to meet that end.”    ~  Chef Joe Schaffer


We were excited to welcome Chef Joe to our family in May of 2012. Since that time Joe has taken his tremendous experience gained from his time at restaurants like Steve & Rocky’s, Grape Expectations, and Tavern 109 and put it to use on our new menu.  Joe is consistently pushing the envelope with new recipe ideas that are implemented on our ever-changing menu, our weekly specials, and amazing wine and martini tastings.  Chef Joe is a consummate professional with exceptional experience while still possessing a passion for his chosen craft... a rare person indeed.



“I have always enjoyed the camaraderie and sense of being a part of a team while working toward a common goal.  I believe in treating each guest as I would a guest in my own home and I am thrilled to be an integral part of the Downtown Main Martini Bar & Grille family.”    ~  David Starzyk
