Larry and Thea and their four children, Austin, Sarina, Thea Belle and Dean have a total of 95 years of restaurant experience between them. Larry and Thea first met years ago in a local restaurant in the Hamptons NY. Larry had just graduated from The Culinary Institute of America and Thea obtained her first job as a salad girl. A few years later, they met again in New York City at a new chic restaurant called ?Metropolis Café?. Larry was expanding his culinary expertise as Executive Chef in New York, while Thea was serving, trying to pay her way through college at Tobe-Coburn, school for Fashion Merchandising, Marketing & Management. Their love for each other as well as for food and fashion combined with hot rods, motorcycles and classic cars spun out an idea waiting to come to life. Hence Chevelles...meaning Bold and Beautiful.
