Celebrity Chefs Do Lunch, Too

by RaeAnne Marsh

Vincent Market Bistro

The Valley is known for many celebrity chefs — too many to mention, in fact. Here are a few of their lunch hot spots to tempt the palate and likely allow patrons to engage with the on-property celeb chef himself. (They are also all longtime community supporters who work with hundreds of local nonprofits to help raise money.)

Geordie’s Restaurant and Lounge

Gourmet lunchtime fare is what Christopher Gross touts. With his recent move to the Wrigley Mansion, he brought many of his popular French-American dishes, plus new and creative dishes inspired by the new environment that make lunch an event for all the right reasons.

Food Network Star Beau MacMillan’s restaurant at Sanctuary Resort and Spa boasts more than just incredible views and service. His food is award winning and his lunch offerings are clever culinary combinations that thrill guests. The Orecchiette Pasta is made with Moroccan chorizo broth, pulled chicken, rock shrimp and manchego cheese. It is light and incredibly flavorful.

Vincent Market Bistro

Casual and comfortable is how to describe Vincent Guerithault’s daytime bistro. Open for lunch, this authentically French spot is inspired by the years of culinary success Vincent brings to the Valley. From thin-crust pizzas to homemade pastas, his dishes are not to be missed. The paninis are known throughout the region and may, very well, be what began the panini craze.
