Meet the Chefs
Rendezvous Bistro, Il Villaggio Osteria, The Kitchen, Bin22, Bar Enoteca, Roadhouse Pub & Eatery, Bodega, Bistro Catering, Bovine + Swine, Cream + Sugar
Gavin Fine developed a passion for the culinary world as a young boy growing up in Chicago. After working for Richard Melman’s restaurant group, Lettuce Entertain You, in his home town, he followed his passion to Cornell University's Hotel and Restaurant Management School and then to Jackson Hole. While his visions of becoming a ski bum never fully materialized, Fine worked nearly every job between the front- and back-of-house, where he met his soon-to-be business partner Roger Freedman, working side-by-side in one of the area’s top restaurant kitchens. Fine and Freedman forged a friendship and decided to open Rendezvous Bistro in 2001, when Fine was just 26-years-old. After a number of years running The Bistro, Fine opened his second business in 2003 (Bistro Catering). Many years later, several restaurants (Il Villaggio Osteria, The Kitchen, Bin22, Bar Enoteca), a specialty grocer (Bodega) and retail brands (Cream + Sugar artisan ice cream and Bovine + Swine craft meats) added to what is now Fine Dining Restaurant Group, Fine continues to be considered a premier restaurateur of the Rocky Mountain region. In addition to FDRG, Fine is also the co-owner and founder of Roadhouse Brewing Co.

A 2011 James Beard “Best New Restaurant” nominee, Girl & the Goat has been praised by high-profile publications such as Saveur, New York Times, Food & Wine, Better Homes and Gardens and others. Little Goat, Izard’s highly successful follow-up to Girl & the Goat, encompasses a diner, coffee shop, bakery and bar. In March 2016, Izard opened her third restaurant, a Chinese concept called Duck Duck Goat in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. 2019 brought Stephanie’s newest restaurant, Cabra Cevicheria, a Peruvian inspired eatery on the rooftop of The Hoxton, Chicago.

Lineage, Row 34 , Island Creek Oyster Bar
Jeremy Sewall started his culinary training at the Culinary Institute of America, where he graduated in 1992. Sewall’s professional career began in Maine at the Relais & Chateau White Barn Inn. Later spreading his wings and moving to Europe, he worked for the Albert Roux in London and Amsterdam before returning to Boston and accepting a position at L’Espalier. Sewall then moved to San Francisco, where he spent five years as the Chef at Lark Creek Inn in Larkspur, California. During his time at the Lark Creek Inn, Sewall was one of five chefs in the country nominated as a Rising Star Chef by the James Beard Foundation in 2000.
In 2003, Sewall moved back to New England and opened the Great Bay restaurant (present day Island Creek Oyster Bar), where he garnered accolades from The New York Times, Esquire and Gourmet, among others. In February 2006, Sewall and his wife Lisa (former pastry chef at L’Espalier) followed their dream of opening their own restaurant and opened Lineage in Brookline, MA. Their appreciation for fresh ingredients and Jeremy’s authentic approach to modern American cuisine evolved into the present day market-driven menu.
Building on the success of Lineage, Sewall opened Island Creek Oyster Bar in 2010, followed by Row 34 in 2013, a second Row 34 in 2015 and a second Island Creek Oyster Bar in 2016.
After years in the kitchen, Sewall released his first cookbook, James Beard Award nominated The New England Kitchen: Fresh Takes on Seasonal Recipes, with co-author Erin Byers Murray in 2014. He then co-authored a second book in 2016, Oysters: A Celebration in the Raw, with Marion Swaybill.
Through Sewall’s restaurants, books, and teaching he is truly dedicated to celebrating the diversity of New England seafood and the passion of the people who bring it to us. For Sewall, it’s in his blood.
