Tag Grandgeorge – Chef/Owner
Born and raised in Eagle Grove, IA, and a ’95 graduate of Buena Vista University, Grandgeorge moved to Des Moines in 1998 to accept a position at Court Avenue Brewing Company and begin his culinary adventure.
Grandgeorge has participated in the opening stages of the most adventurous and exciting projects in the recent history of the Des Moines restaurant landscape. Grandgeorge honed his skills while working as chef de cuisine at Chat Noir Café, chef saucier at Varsity Brasserie and Coffeehouse and executive chef at the ArtHouse Restaurant and Gallery.
Seeking worldly experiences, Grandgeorge embraced a year-long sojourn in 2004. His travels led him to the mountains of Alsace, France, for a three month tour of the gastronomically rich region of his grandfather’s origin. Back in the States, Grandgeorge assumed residence in upstate New York working under Chef Josh Kroner as sous chef/master steward for the awarded Terrapin Restaurant/Bistro/Bar in Rhinebeck, New York.
Grandgeorge was the opening chef at the Grand Piano Bistro in May, 2007. Working with a blank canvas, he was able to design the kitchen and the well rounded menu of worldly cuisine.
Le Jardin originally opened on 42nd Street in 2008 in a shared space and after 3 years of catering under the name, Grandgeorge is happy to call Beaverdale home.
