About Charlie Palmer
Master Chef and hospitality entrepreneur Charlie Palmer has received critical acclaim for his signature Progressive American Cuisine, a style built on rambunctious flavors and unexpected combinations with a deep and lasting infusion of classical French technique. Influenced by his childhood experiences working in his family's vegetable garden, Palmer was an early advocate of farm over factory food. In 1988, he made a landmark commitment to creating dishes featuring regional American ingredients at his sublime three-star Aureole.
Over the years, Palmer has combined his creative cooking spirit and flair for business to open over a dozen distinguished restaurants across the country, a growing collection of food-forward wine shops and award-winning boutique hotels including Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer.
