Getting to know Executive Chef Kyoo Eom

Back to Restaurant

Before gracing our kitchen with his talent and expertise, Executive Chef Kyoo Eom traveled many miles and traversed the globe to train and master his skills. Born in South Korea, Eom initially came to the United States to pursue his dream of attending culinary school. Having graduated from Le Cordon Bleu at Brown College, he then cooked in New York City for Daniel Boulud's signature DB Bistro Moderne and Cafe Boulud, where he trained under Chef Andrew Carmellini. After that experience, he spent five years ruling the kitchen of 2941 Restaurant (in Falls Church, Virginia) as chef de cuisine. Given his training, it should come as no surprise that Eom specializes in French-inspired, farm-to-table dishes.
