Recently, a new chef joined the Metropolitan team. We are thrilled to introduce Geoffrey Groditski, who began working in the hospitality industry in 1992 when he was 16. Most recently, he held the position of Executive Chef at The University Club of Denver and The Fort. He’s very talented and we’re thrilled to have him working with us!
What inspired you to become a chef? My love of food and drink and enjoying the pleasure of a good meal!
What brought you to Metropolitan? I had taken a hiatus from cooking and was in the process of starting a consulting business. The former Chef, Kenny Callahan, is a friend of mine and I asked him if I could moonlight a bit to get my kitchen chops back and give him a hand.
What do you most look forward to about working here? The opportunity to use my experience to work with the staff and make great food for people who come and eat in the restaurant.
How would you describe your cooking style? Interesting question. I think food should just be food. Let the ingredients shine and make honest good meals for people to eat and share.
Do you have any favorite/signature dishes? I love good bbq and smoked meats. Anything on the grill and I am very happy.
Finish this sentence: A meal is not complete without…good company to share it with!
