Brandon RiceNEW MAKER!

SoMa, San Francisco, CA, USA


As former Chef de Cuisine of Rich Table in San Francisco, Brandon Rice toes the line between local and global. With the former, locality is at the crux of his sourcing, maximizing the best of what’s in season at nearby farmers’ market to fill out his menu. But although the products are local, the flavors have a worldly influence, stretching every continent. Prior to Rich Table, Brandon received an associate degree in culinary arts at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and went on to stage in esteemed kitchens throughout Europe, including Quique Dacosta in Spain and Noma in Copenhagen. He clocked time at Boston’s famed Clio before moving to the Bay Area to work at Coi - his first introduction to Northern Californian cuisine. His debut restaurant, Ernest will open in January 2020. @brandonrice123
