Frank Lee, Executive Chef

Lee has been cooking for over 40 years with a particular passion for sustainable and locally sourced cuisine. Early in his career, Lee launched an innovative vegetarian restaurant in South Carolina. His attentiveness to fresh and seasonable food continues to present itself in the fresh herbs he tends in his own garden and the many relationships he nurtures with local purveyors of meat and produce in Mount Pleasant. Lee’s cooking is worldly in design as he has traveled to many of the top kitchens in France and has worked in several French-inspired restaurants such as Les Nomades in Chicago and the former Le Pavillion in Washington, D.C. Featured as a “Great Chef of the South,” Lee’s expertise has been recognized in Food & Wine, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
