This summer we are beyond excited to announce a new partnership with Chef Joe Gancarz. Executive Chef Joe Gancarz began his culinary career out of necessity during college. These humble beginnings in a series of fast casual restaurants were just the start of an already impressive career. Joe left the traditional safe route and pursued culinary school at Chicago’s Kendall College. The many accolades Joe received at school including deans list and being selected as teaching assistant, point to his never fail attitude that have carried him through his culinary career. After school Joe worked in a series of Michelin starred restaurants including a position as Chef de Cuisine responsible for a large portion of the menu that earned the star as well as a 2015 Zagat 30 under 30 Best Young Innovative Chefs. Today Joe has taken the position of Executive Chef and partner at Brix, forming a new partnership with his friend from the first day of culinary school. He is poised to bring the Michelin Star experience to the world of catering and eventually to a series of restaurant projects the new partnership will create.
Additionally we are poised to announce another new team member Sous Chef Ian Mccaffrey. Ian has an impressive resume for someone of his age and his experience has already made our team stronger.
In celebration of our new partnership and to offer you a chance to see first hand how talented our new team is, we are hosting a pop-dinner on September 30th at 7:00 PM. The dinner will be 7 courses with wine pairings for $95. Tickets are available at the link below. We look forward to seeing you there!
