Originally hailing from the snowy suburbs of Buffalo, NY, Chantal Tseng spent her college years studying Art and Media at Pomona College in Southern California. She has been a bartender for the last 10 years in Washington DC. A true student of all things liquid, she is a "Bar Ready" graduate of the B.A.R. program, a Certified Sommelier via the Court of Master Sommeliers, as well as a tea aficionado on the side. She is a founding member of the DC Craft Bartenders Guild and is currently acting secretary. Tseng currently develops and maintains the cocktail program at the historic Tabard Inn, where she is very much inspired by seasonal ingredients from the kitchen as well as from old time cocktail books, forgotten recipes and good stories. In her free time, she plays a mean game of pool.
