Vie Restaurant

“Tastes of the seasons, preserved,” is the quote of the kitchen staff here at Vie. Our philosophy of using fresh, seasonal ingredients is represented in its contemporary American cuisine. Vie supports many of the local farmers and artisans in the Midwest.

After studying Photography and Cinematography at Columbia College, Nathan moved on to and graduated from the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. Nathan worked the front and back of the house before becoming Chef de Cuisine at Vie. He also teaches butchering classes and heads the charcuterie program at Vie.
