“I want to provide customers with the welcoming environment that makes them feel comfortable and give them a high-end dining experience like no other. I work hard to find the best local, fresh items to incorporate into my dishes. Everything on my menu I spent long hours researching and finding the best ingredients for, I think guests feel that when they take that first bite. I put my heart and soul into creating a unique dinining experience for all guests, I do everything I can to ensure every guest leaves full and happy. I would like to add that I am eternally grateful for all the love and support I have received in the time I have been here at Bar 31 and I am looking forward to the years to come!” - Elser Ramirez
