BlackSheepThe Perez family created the Black Sheep Restaurant on the premise of being weird and being ok with it, and on the promise of using the freshest of ingredients from the most sustainable sources.

Global in scope, the black sheep menu features Latin, Asian, and Italian flavors but relies heavily on classic French technique.  Chef Robert’s restaurant is one of the only places in town where one can eat sweetbreads, ramen, and Peruvian potato tacos all in one sitting!  Robert’s creative, inspired dishes bring people utmost satisfaction while sometimes leading them ever so slightly outside of their comfort zone.  Chef Robert also aspires to do what’s right by sourcing his produce from the farmer’s markets and by being mindful of waste and water use.

Ruben Perez, Robert’s son and business partner, has worked hard to cultivate a welcoming environment where guests feel genuinely taken care of and appreciated, and where people can be themselves and feel like they are home.  As a family, they hope to create a uniquely unforgettable culinary experience in an unpretentious, fun, casual environment.  (For more information, please visit
