- Kitchen Manager -
Our Kitchen Manager, David Gray, is a 1992 graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York. An avid skier, he moved to Aspen, where he spent seven years honing his skills in some of Colorado's premier restaurants and resorts, such as The Little Nell Hotel, a five-star hotel in the heart of Aspen. After moving to the Denver area to help an associate open his own restaurant, David continued his culinary journey at several hotels as Banquet Chef and Sous Chef. Soon, he became interested in healthy, organic techniques, which led him to Sunflower restaurant in Boulder, a long-time favorite of locals. From there, he opened and managed the Niwot Tavern for 13 years, developing his managerial style and gaining more culinary experience. Now, we welcome him to Pepper's Fireside Grille as a valuable kitchen leader.
