He prefers using natural colors and textures as much as possible as well as incorporating flavors in a modern way.  

“We were so impressed by Chef Lupin’s modern approach to food that we had to partner with him. We look forward to the relaunching of the CHAR’D menu and a number of collaborations in the near future with some of our existing brands and new concepts,” Michael Zimmerman, Co-CEO of Wade Foster Hospitality Group.
