Sandro Reinhardt, Cheebo’s Co-Owner/ Executive Chef, discussed his philosophy, “After a day at the restaurant, I want to sleep at night knowing that I have fed people healthy food. All of my meats are grass-fed, with no hormones, antibiotics or nitrates. The chickens are free- range and the fish are sustainable caught wild or from the best farms.”
Cheebo’s is different! Their interesting menu had so many enticing dishes not found in other restaurants. You will see Greek, Italian, Moroccan, French, and even Louisiana delights included in their Mediterranean menu.
After finding cedar-plank grilled Scottish Salmon on the menu, I decided to experience the difference in taste.
Sandro explained, “The farm raises Scottish Salmon organically, all the feed comes from nature. The salmon are kept in large pens with room enough for them to swim. These pens are well-kept and the fish are protected. The salmon cost a little more but we feel good serving it.”
The salmon was a big, 9 ounce, perfectly cooked meal with enough to take home to enjoy later!
Sandro is so creative! His house-made Duck Confit dinner also tastes great as a DuckWich with roasted red pepper, arugula, and Swiss cheese! Salmon can go a long way as a main dish but if you are not so hungry, choose a Salmon Burger or Cheebo’s home-smoked Salmon Pizza. Sandro doesn’t use regular pork, he features Berkshire Pork Shoulder dinner and a Berkshire PorkWich. You can try the all-natural Brisket dinner or the home-smoked Brisket Pizza.
Sandro is proud of the signature Burger his father (Co-Owner) worked very hard creating what he thought was the perfect burger. They just had to add the secret sauce. The half-pound Burger had ground grass-fed, free-range Piedmontese beef from 4 different cuts of meat bought locally at the famous Farmer’s Market, on Fairfax.
Ask the waiter to show you the special way to eat a burger. They prepare it in layers with a special place for the tomatoes, lettuce and other ingredients so it will be good and juicy to eat!
Cheebo’s offers 14 different pizzas which include Truffled Mushrooms, Goat Cheese, Alfredo and other unique selections.
I appreciate when a restaurant owner cares enough to buy healthy products then we know it will be a very special meal.
