Justin Bogle as Executive Chef

January 12, 2009 - Gilt, the acclaimed restaurant at The New York Palace Hotel and recent recipient of “two-stars” from MICHELIN, is proud to announce Justin Bogle as its new Executive Chef. Bogle, who most recently served as Executive Sous Chef for Gilt, brings his enthusiasm and perspective to the forefront of the celebrated restaurant. 

Bogle has already established himself as a culinary force, having collaborated with Gilt’s former Executive Chef Christopher Lee since 2004 when they worked together at the Striped Bass in Philadelphia.  Bogle went on to join Lee at Gilt where he’s served as Executive Sous Chef since 2006. A graduate of The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia, Bogle has worked in other renowned Philadelphia restaurants including Alma de Cuba.  He is currently in the kitchen and his contributions to Gilt’s menu will continue to evolve.

I look forward to overseeing the execution of Gilt’s menu and creating memorable experiences for our guests.”

David Carmichael will carry on as the Executive Pastry Chef, continuing to complement Bogle’s brilliant savories with his vibrant and inventive style.  The front of the house staff will continue under the leadership of Restaurant Director Christopher Day who has also built one of the most ambitious restaurant tea programs in the country, offering 65 selections and a wide variety of seasonal and limited special offerings.
