Bobby Frascella, a two-decade hospitality industry veteran, heads the 16-seat Summit House bar, crafting unique cocktails to fit the season, Executive Chef Martin Kester's exciting menu and his own sense of culinary adventure. 

Born and raised in neighboring Chatham, New Jersey, Bobby joined Summit House prior to its April 2017 debut, working with renowned mixologist Tad Carducci to craft the restaurant's opening cocktail menu. As the seasons change so does that menu, as Bobby and his team infuse fresh, locally procured ingredients with the world's top spirits to create delicious, memorable drinks.

"I've been lucky to work with some great individuals both behind the bar and within the industry," Bobby says. "My mentors and, most recently, my coworkers have instilled a desire in me to keep learning not just about cocktails, but also how to improve my hospitality skills. The customer experience is absolutely everything in this industry, and we keep that top of mind with every customer we greet."
