Chef de Cuisine

nathan-guggenheimer200.jpgChef de Cuisine Nathan Guggenheimer became Chef de Cuisine of db Bistro Moderne in April 2010.  The promotional appointment was  a natural next step for Chef Guggenheimer, who served as Sous Chef for sister restaurants db Bistro Moderne and Lumière since their opening in December, 2008.


Nathan is from Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, and a graduate of the VCC Chef Training Program.  Since graduating in 2002, he honed his culinary skills in France and abroad with renowned Chefs like Philip Howard of The Square in London, England.


Chef Guggenheimer returned to BC to the position of Sous Chef, and later Executive Chef at the prestigious West Coast Fishing Club, then ultimately to West restaurant to work with respected Chef David Hawksworth.


Since joining db Bistro Moderne and Lumière in 2008, Nathan worked intimately with Chef Daniel Boulud (in Vancouver and at DANIEL in New York City), Lumière Executive Chef Dale MacKay, former db Bistro Vancouver Executive Chef Stephane Istel, and db Bistro Moderne NY Chef de Cuisine Olivier Muller.


nathan-plating-clams.jpgChef Guggenheimer's culinary experience and unique ability to marry Pacific Northwest ingredients with classic French technique, combined with his trademark consistency and team spirit, make him the ideal candidate to command Chef Boulud's Vancouver bistro kitchen.


Look for Nathan weekday mornings as he shops from local farmers at the Trout Lake and Kitsilano markets on his way to work.


Former Chef de Cuisine Stephane Istel will take on the challenge of overseeing the kitchen of Daniel Boulud's new db Bistro Moderne opening at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Resort in June, 2010.


One of the culinary world’s most respected figures, Chef Daniel Boulud brings his award-winning cuisine to Canada for the first time at the new DB Bistro Moderne, working with Chef de Cuisine Nathan Guggenheimer. This contemporary restaurant melds traditional French cuisine with local, fresh Pacific Northwest ingredients. Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Nathan Guggenheimer offer seasonal menus to showcase the best of the West Coast, and the restaurant has an extensive wine list featuring many New and Old World wines. Set in a casual atmosphere, db Bistro promises dining that is as easy-going and welcoming as it is delicious.
