Chef Greg Mason

About the Chef

Chef Greg Mason, originally from the Baltimore area, has worked in the culinary industry for 15 years.

Chef Mason helped open The White Oak Tavern in January 2014 and has been the Executive Chef there ever since.

When asked what makes him a unique chef, Chef Mason tells us it's, "being able to create a balanced dish and a balanced menu using techniques and ingredients from all over the world."

A favorite dish he's prepared is corned beef tongue with rosemary spaetzle, mustard jus, mustard greens, and popcorn mornay, "because it's a simple and flavorful dish using a unique flavor combination."
