Brooke Bishop & Greg Stine
The dynamic husband and wife team return to Central Pennsylvania after spending nine years in the historic tourist destination and culinary hot spot, Charleston, SC.
Brooke, a Montgomery native graduated from Penn State with a Bachelors Degree in Hospitality Management and a Certificate in French Cuisine and Culture from Institut Paul Bocuse, Lyon France. She began her first job out of college as a Catering Sales Manager at a full service hotel in State College, where she met Greg. Greg is originally from Clearfield, PA and graduated from Gannon University with a Bachelors in Marketing and a passion for hospitality.
After two years of dating, they decided to relocate to pursue more career opportunities. Charleston with all of it's Southern charm was quickly rising to become the number one destination for weddings in the US. Together in 2012, they worked tirelessly to perfect their culinary skills and build the premier award winning boutique catering company in Charleston, B. Gourmet Catering.
The couple was married in 2015 and welcomed their daughter, Zoey, into the world in 2018.
Living 12 hours from family was always difficult, but after having a child, it became impossible. The couple began strategizing how they would be able to relocate back to the area to be surrounded by family without sacrificing their career (and so Greg could trout fish anytime he wanted).
An opportunity to purchase real estate and a liquor license presented itself in Muncy and a qualified couple showed interest in continuing the success of B. Gourmet in Charleston.
Muncy and all of it's small town charm and limited dining options, was exactly where the couple wanted to start their next venture.
Basil will bring a trendy family friendly rustic farm to table vibe and highlight wood oven cookery. The menu will rotate seasonally to maintain quality and sustainability.
The former Muncy carnival grounds "The Grounds" behind Basil are utilized to host community events. They are also available to rent to host your own private event!
Catering is second nature for our Owners and they will also offer off premise catering services upon request.
