In 2005, Graham and his Wine Bar team hosted The King Estate Winery, Wine Lovers Dinner at the famed James Beard Foundation in Manhattan, New York. For dinner, he served a six-course meal paired with matching wines. The event was a sold out success. Since then, he has served three more dinners at the famous brown-stone location. In 2009 Mark became the executive chef of Mezzanotte Ristorante in Guilderland, where owners Mitch & Connie Ware created an upscale-intimate dining spot that has become a Capital Region buzz.
Within thirty years, Mark's casual dining has become a brand. He teams with passionate local farmers and professive upstate chefs and beyond within the Capital Region. His gastronomic evolution has led him from Boston, Massachusetts, to San Francisco/Napa, California to upstate New York. Mark was the executive sous chef at Max London’s Restaurant + Bar in Saratoga Springs before coming to Taste.
