Appearances at Pebble Beach Food & Wine 2013:
CHEF LEFEVRE, a native of Madison, WI, developed his passion for cooking as a child by helping his Mother in the kitchen. After working in various restaurants, LeFevre enrolled at the renowned Culinary Institute of America, and it was during this time that he interned at Chef Charlie Trotter’s celebrated restaurant in Chicago and made such an impression that he landed a job at Trotter’s Las Vegas, where he worked until it closed in 1995.
LeFevre seized the opportunity to travel to France and hone his classical skills in some of the world’s most distinguished kitchens.In 2002, LeFevre decided to explore new and exotic cuisines, which launched him on a two year globetrotting experience. He consulted, made guest appearances and conducted promotional events in destinations as diverse as Singapore, Bangkok, Stockholm and Tokyo by teaming up with leading hoteliers and restaurateurs. In 2004, LeFevre was recruited as Executive Chef of the Water Grill, downtown Los Angeles’ seminal seafood restaurant. Under LeFevre’s six year culinary leadership Water Grill earned a coveted Michelin star.
Now at Manhattan Beach Post (M.B. Post), LeFevre returns to his roots with a highly personal and soulful restaurant offering a more rustic menu of playful, artisanal dishes designed to be shared. A Manhattan Beach resident, LeFevre is thrilled to bring the neighborhood a Social House where guests come for dinner but stay for the spirited and engaging atmosphere.
