Meet The Team
Clay Nutting, Owner
Clay Nutting was born in Sacramento, but raised on a farm in Berlin, Massachusetts.
Clay got off the farm periodically throughout high school where he discovered his love for DIY music and art at the WAG in Worcester, MA. Later, while in college at Worcester State University, Clay co-founded a music and arts non-profit called Concerts 4 Charity.
Brad Cecchi, Chef
Brad Cecchi started his career in Sacramento when he was 16 years old, washing dishes and making pizzas at the Embassy Suites Hotel. Through opening the hotel and restaurant, he learned a work ethic that turned into an obsession and career. As a graduate of the Culinary Arts program at American River College and later at the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, Brad learned the classical ways of cooking and returned to Sacramento with his fine-tuned skills and a passion for Northern California’s farmers, ranchers, artisans and vintners.

Zagat“What may have been the city’s most anticipated opening ever arrived in late 2017 and doesn't disappoint. Canon’s chef, Brad Cecchi, grew up in the area, and after a rapid rise to the top position at Calistoga’s Solbar, he's back home. Here Cecchi teams up with Clay Nutting and the two might be Sacramento’s most dynamic duo since Chris Webber and Peja Stojaković played for the Kings.” Read More
