Chef Jeff Jarrett has been an integral part of some of the best restaurants in the greater Cleveland area. Breaking in to the industry at the AAA four-diamond rated “The Leopard” in The Bertram Inn and Conference Center, he quickly rose to Executive Chef before joining the opening team as Chef de Cuisine at Light Bistro, voted best new restaurant in three prominent Northeast Ohio publications.
Seeking to grow and broaden his knowledge, Chef Jarrett became Sous Chef at DANTE restaurant, learning under Michelin 1-star chef, Dante Boccuzzi. Chef Jarrett then became the Executive Chef at the newly re-opened Lockkeepers, reincarnating classic dishes from the restaurant’s storied past. From Lockkeepers, Chef Jarrett moved to be the Executive Chef at North End in Hudson, and then opened his first solo venture in Strongsville, Palate, where he used local, seasonal products to enhance his creative, progressive cuisine
Chef Jarrett’s move to AMP150 as the Executive Chef will enable him to continue to share his passion for good food and great dining experiences with the city he loves. Jarrett is an expert at bringing together a multitude of flavors in dishes that you know and some that you wouldn’t expect.
Chef Jarrett is the co-creator of the non-profit organization, “Dinner in the Dark”, a monthly dinner series that explores edgy menu items, promotes local chefs, and uses the best local ingredients all the while keeping guests “in the dark” about their 6-course menu for that evening. Every Dinner in the Dark event benefits a local charity which is chosen by that month’s participating chefs. To date they’ve raised over $80,000 since October 2010. www.dinnerinthedarkcleveland.com.
