Danyele McPherson of The Grape

Local Lady We Love, and Where to Meet Her

This is Danyele. She's the chef de cuisine at The Grape. Reasons we love her: 1) she's a great cook (duh), 2) she's perfectly content to kick back with a Scotch & soda, 3) she's got a proper appreciation of Monty Python's killer rabbit, 4) she was awesome on Top Chef!, and 4) she thinks Stay Puft would win in a fight with Paul Bunyan, because "It took four highly trained Ghostbusters with specially designed proton packs to take that marshmallow fool down."
