Graham Elliot

Chef, TV Personality

Chicago

Culinary wizard Graham Elliot juxtaposes haute cuisine with humor and out-of-the-box artistry. At age 27, he became the youngest Four-Star chef to be named in any major U.S. city. Then at age 31, he opened Graham Elliot, a restaurant that would not only bear his name, but embody his core belief that cooking is an artistic, creative outlet. He closed his namesake fine-dining restaurant in December 2013. From December 2010 to August 2013, Elliot ran the casual sandwich shop Grahamwich in Chicago's River North area. His third Chicago restaurant, g.e.b., offers a stripped-down, seasonally focused menu. In addition to appearing on Iron Chef and Top Chef Masters, he co-stars alongside Gordon Ramsay in the FOX series MasterChef. His latest restaurant, Primary Food & Drink, opened in Greenwich, Connecticut in December 2013.
