Ever wonder who’s responsible for preparing all the delicious dishes served daily at Egg Harbor Café in Barrington? It takes a team, but the man in charge is Kitchen Manager, Ruben Dominguez.

Ruben says he and his kitchen crew have been cooking up a storm with the recent debut of Egg Harbor Café’s new fall & winter menu. The latest options include an exciting mix of brand new seasonal dishes PLUS the return of some fall favorites. Have you tried any of the menu additions yet?

Ruben’s Recipe – Treat the Team & Guests Like Family

After 15 years working with Egg Harbor Café, Reuben has earned a reputation for embracing challenges, keeping everyone together when the restaurant gets extremely busy and cooking for guests as he would for his own family.

“At the end of the day I feel tired but I’m happy,” Ruben says. “Egg Harbor Café is my other home and the people here are my other family. I love what I do.”

Egg Harbor Café Barrington manager, Taki Mullins says Ruben puts extraordinary care and passion into each plate for every guest.

“On our busiest days the kitchen can be very intense with a lot of pressure. Our standards are extremely high because we want to make sure we’re meeting guests’ expectations,” Taki says. “The job Ruben does in the kitchen to hold the rest of the team up to those same standards is incredible.”

When Ruben’s not at Egg Harbor Café, you’ll find him spending time with his children or playing instruments in his band. He plays guitar, tuba, trombone, trumpet and piano and says it also takes a team to make great music!

Tomorrow we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day and are reminded of the Civil Rights leader’s life, legacy, and impact. 🤝

Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
