The Scoop: The Tavern CDC Jessie Gilroy to join Peacemaker, Sidney Street Cafe

December 23rd 01:12pm, 2015



Jessie Gilroy, chef de cuisine at The Tavern in the Central West End, will join chef Kevin Nashan’s kitchen team in the new year. Her last day at The Tavern is Dec. 31.

Gilroy, a member of Sauce Magazine’s 2015 Ones to Watch will spend some time at Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co., then segue to Sidney Street Cafe. “We’re excited to have her be part of the team,” Nashan said. “She loves cooking and making people happy and does whatever it takes.”

Gilroy said she has long admired Sidney Street and looks forward to the next step in her career. “Every time we would go to Sidney Street, I was amazed by the ingredients, the technique,” Gilroy said. “I want to keep growing and learning.”

Brant Baldanza is co-owner of OG Hospitality Group, which owns The Tavern, Shack STL and The Corner Pub and Grill. He said Harry Sexauer and Matt Schaeffer serve as co-executive chefs at The Tavern. Sexauer is currently chef at Shack STL in Frontenac, while Schaeffer is chef de cuisine at The Tavern. “We are excited to have Harry back at The Tavern,” Baldanza said, who said The Tavern menu will not change after the chef switch. “Losing Jessie is a loss, but we’re excited for her.”
