To witness Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner in action is to see a masterful artisan operate with calculated clarity of purpose. Originally of Austrian heritage, he was raised in a scenic village named Wallsee, situated right on the Danube. As a kid, he naturally gravitated towards cooking, and that passion for food combined with his love for traveling led him to NYC. He was sous chef at Windows of the World at the World Trade Center during the late 80’s, and followed that with a tenure at David Bouley in Tribeca.
