Cathy Lusk, head chef for Tables of Content, has retired after 25 years at the Sylvia Beach Hotelís landmark restaurant. Lusk came to Newport after graduating from the Culinary Institute in Portland. She was the first chef hired, and created the restaurantís family style menu. Longtime hotel patrons as well as locals recall her satisfying full-course meals and creative chocolate desserts. Lusk retired in December, and over the years worked with chefs Lorel Meyers, Alex Llumiquinga and Pat Morford.

Rowan Lehrman and Nanci Courtney began as co-chefs this year, meshing their eclectic cooking histories and styles to continue Luskís tradition of home-style food.
