Our Chef: Bryant Anderson
Chef Bryant Anderson joined Rack House Kitchen & Tavern, the first restaurant concept from Chicago-based restaurant group, Wine Not Hospitality, in November 2015, bringing more than 10 years of industry experience to the table. Known for his highly lauded meat-smoking techniques and adoration of BBQ flavors, Anderson kicked off his career at the Chicago Marriot O’Hare, where he led dinner service at the hotel’s Harvest Grill Restaurant. From there, he went on to serve as executive chef at Mount Prospect’s Blues Bar BBQ, developing his signature smoking style, which the restaurant still uses today, and honing his skills and appreciation for comfort favorites.
As the executive chef at Rack House, Anderson plays a key role in enhancing and developing the suburban BBQ restaurant’s extensive menu and creating signature dishes that emulate its rustic, lodge-house vibe. A fun-loving chef, Anderson’s over-the-top personality is oftentimes reflected in his cooking and management style, with an emphasis on bold and unique flavor combinations to create stand out dishes.
