In the presence of global uncertainty, Chef Curtis Duffy finds himself with more motivation and fire under his heels than ever as he opens his newest, most highly anticipated restaurant in Chicago. Despite the challenges he faced with the unfortunate end of Grace, the highly lauded Michelin 3-star restaurant in Chicago, Chef Duffy views the experience as a learning opportunity that fostered personal and professional growth, stating that leaving the restaurant was one of the best decisions he ever made. Chef Duffy sat down with the Rosendale Collective team to share insight about his new restaurant, how his team is working to adapt to a new kind of restaurant industry climate before even opening, and how he is prioritizing purposeful, ingredient-focused cuisine while breaking free—and learning—from the past.
