Having spent time in kitchens around the world, both Chef Anderson and Chef de Cuisine Mike Ryan are eager to bring an openness to inventive cuisine featuring international influences that marry local ingredients with global flavors.Outside of the kitchen, the team enjoys traveling to restaurants across the nation, participating in guest chef dinners and observing the latest trends and techniques put to practice by his peers in order to hone in on their own skills.
In 2008, along with business partner, Stephen Distler, Chef and Culinary Pioneer Scott Anderson opened elements, bringing to the Princeton restaurants scene a new dining experience.
Seamlessly blending together progressive modernist cooking techniques with a superlative focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Anderson tantalizes taste buds with his trademark “Interpretive-American” cuisine that ultimately draws out the purest flavors of each ingredient.
The new location at 66 Witherspoon St provides elements’ guests with an enhanced, interactive and personal dining experience.
With just nine tables, all within view of the open kitchen, elements offers guests an inviting and intimate dining experience that lets them connect and feel at one with the chef.
Nassau Hall also housed a British garrison prior to the Battle of Princeton in 1777, and it became the site of the nation’s capital when the Continental Congress met there between June and November of 1783.
Today it is used for administrative offices, including the President’s office.
In 1910 the owner, Princeton University, leased it to the Public Library, and in 1967 it became home of the Historical Society.
When this building was completed in 1756, it was the largest academic building in the colonies, and it housed the entire College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) for nearly 50 years.
Once the headquarters of the Historical Society of Princeton, this Georgian building at 158 Nassau Street is one of the few remaining 18th-century houses in Princeton Borough.
