After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park in 2007, Graham Zimmerman moved to the Napa Valley in 2010, securing the position of executive sous chef at St. Helena’s iconic Harvest Inn. He was also sous chef for the team at Eiko’s Napa when it first opened, and before that, assisted in the launch of Morimoto Napa.
Spearheading the launch of TASTE, Zimmerman will introduce new menu items indicative of the “new American cuisine” movement. The focus is on simple preparations, letting the freshness and vibrant flavors of the region’s ingredients shine through. TASTE, which is slated to open in late March, will also have a strong emphasis on curated cocktails, serving only the finest spirits and elixirs and “hyper-local” brews.
