Executive Chef Andrew Shedden
Chef Shedden brings more than fifteen years of culinary expertise to the Mon Ami Gabi kitchen. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, he knew early on that a career in the food arts was for him. Early in his career he received a breadth of experience working in fine dining, catering and gastro pubs.
In 2010, Shedden joined Lettuce Entertain You as Sous Chef at Café Ba-Ba Reeba where he mastered Spanish cuisine and tapas-style dishes. In 2013 he was asked to become Executive Chef at Mon Ami Gabi in Lincoln Park. As the leader in this chef driven restaurant, he is committed to making each guest's experience memorable and will continue to source only the freshest and finest ingredients. Shedden is thrilled to be working with French food, once again, and enjoys the challenge of mastering the French cooking technique.
He currently resides in Chicago’s Rodgers Park neighborhood with his two dogs. If he is not in the kitchen you can find him spending time with his daughter, enjoying the city’s museums or shopping at the local farmers' market.
