Chef Ellen Gill McCarty Survives Cancer, Returns to Culinary Scene With Brunch

Equus Restaurant will debut its first buffet collaboration featuring buddies Chef Dean Corbett and Chef Ellen Gill McCarty on Sunday April 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a “Science Hill Inn” style buffet.  The bountiful buffet featuring comfort food fare with a Southern flair celebrates Chef Ellen being cancer free and toasts her father, Terry Gill Sr.’s day of birth. Her father ran and operated Science Hill Inn for almost 40 years with his wife, Chef Donna Gill and Ellen.  He passed away a few years ago, but his memory lives on in the wisdom he passed down to her like, “Weigh them when they come in, weigh them when they leave and charge accordingly!”

This buffet will be $40 per person (does not include tax or tip) and includes a cocktail with Ballotin Whiskey.
