James Beard Award–winning and Michelin-starred chef Gabriel Kreuther serves refined, French-influenced cuisine with a distinctly New York spirit at his eponymous restaurant, which has received three stars from the New York Times and been awarded a Michelin star. A native of Alsace, France, Gabriel enrolled in culinary school at École Hôtelière in Strasbourg, where he began his formal education and went on to work his way up the ranks of Michelin-starred kitchens in Germany, France, and Switzerland. In 2004, Gabriel joined Danny Meyer to open The Modern, where his cuisine garnered the restaurant critical acclaim, and Gabriel himself won the James Beard Foundation Award for “Best Chef: New York City” in 2009.
