Chef Joseph Rossi brings more than 20 years of culinary experience to one of Chicago’s most historic and iconic restaurants located in the Loop. A native Chicagoan, Rossi found his calling to cuisine after high school and enrolled in Kendall College to start on a passionate journey through the culinary world. Upon graduation, he honed his skills as a line cook at Onesixtyblue working with chefs Patrick Robertson and Martial Noguier. He worked his way up through the ranks of some of the city’s best restaurants.

Chef Joe credits his culinary range to the great many teachers who have welcomed him into their kitchen, as well as his grandmother. One of his earliest memories involved him standing on a stepstool wearing an oversized apron, cooking alongside her, and learning all of her Italian cooking techniques and special family recipes.

Bringing his exquisite palate and creativity to everything he touches, Chef Joe continues to follow his passion, growing his business, brand, and cultivating a new era of culinary opportunities. He believes the most flavorful cuisine is made with the best ingredient and he considers it part of his job to inspire and educate guests about the beauty of the food he prepares for them.
