Owners/Happy Partners Larry & Sandy Tracey Shore

Executive Chef Larry Shore started his training early at the tender age of 5 years old – good times he and his mother spent making omelets, pizza & cheesecake. At that time, he told his mom he wanted to be a ‘cooker man’ when he grew up.

His professional career bloomed after working in fine dining restaurants in Manhattan, NY. He worked for Serge Backes (Michelin Star Chef), where he found his love for Mediterranean Cuisine. The draw of the West of Arizona brought him to the 5 Diamond Boulders Resort where he was Chef de Cuisine of the Latilla Room. Then he spent several years as the Sous Chef at the renowned House of Tricks in Tempe.  After moving to Sedona, he held the same position at L‘Auberge de Sedona. He was the Consultant/Chef to help open The Barrelhouse in Chandler and at Four Friends Kitchen in Denver, CO. Larry and Sandy finally had the opportunity to open their own restaurant, Cedar 65 Bistro and Gallery in Evergreen, CO… and do it their way! After 4 successful years they sold Cedar 65 Bistro because they always dreamed of coming back to Arizona and sharing their well-developed cuisine to AZ. They now have this chance in North Scottsdale at Twist Bistro and Gallery where they promise to deliver scratch made quality local sourced food with a Mediterranean accent and a ‘twist’ of something new.
