Chandlers Welcomes New Executive Chef

“Don’t worry,” says Chandlers new Executive Chef Chris Gardner, “I won’t be changing any of the Chandlers favorites, but I will be adding new, seasonally-inspired dishes to the menu.” 

Owner Rex Chandler recently announced the addition of Chef Gardner to the team after luring him away from La Jolla and Coronado, California where Gardner served as Executive Chef in fine dining restaurants Eddie V’s Prime Seafood and Peohe’s.  “He brings a wealth of experience in working with premium ingredients at top-notch steak and seafood restaurants,” says Chandler.  “He’s a fantastic addition to our culinary team.”

Formally Executive Chef of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, Gardner transferred to the La Jolla location as Chef Partner.  He was then named Chef Partner of the Year for five years as he helped open locations in Seattle, San Diego, and Virginia.

Having received his culinary arts degree in Seattle over 25 years ago, Gardner will have no problem acclimating to Idaho.  He admits, “I missed the Northwest and missed working for a person instead of a big corporation.”  

Gardner says, “I was very familiar with Russ’s success in Newport Beach. Moving to Chandlers, and Boise, was everything I was looking for as the next step in my career.” He adds, “I’m also excited to work with local and regional wineries on upcoming winemaker dinners and look forward to exploring all of Idaho’s culinary offerings.”

“We are so excited to welcome Chef Gardner,” says owner Rex Chandler.  Making their new home in Idaho, Gardner is joined by his wife, Bethney, daughters Olivia and Madeline, and two adorable beagles.
