Long time fans of Melt’s eclectic vibe and fresh menu, Shannon and Diane moved back to the Queen City from San Francisco, in 2017. Shannon is a Cincinnati native, and a whole-food and vegan chef with over 20 years of experience under her belt. She has a tremendous amount of passion for creating innovative dishes that are healthy, organic, and locally sourced. Diane was born and raised in California, and her culinary influences have been primarily whole-food based with a vegan/vegetarian slant. They are both extremely excited to share their experiences and inspirations from the Bay Area’s culinary and craft cocktail scene, while still celebrating the classic menu items that have made Melt an institution in Northside and Cincinnati, for over 15 years!
