Chef Laine Myers
I opened Graffiato in 2014, worked as a sous until late 2016, then came to Metzger as a sous. I won this year’s broad appetite “iron chef” competition, and my inspirations from childhood were my grandmother from Germany who never let anyone go hungry, and cooked meals around the clock including brisket with spaetzle, cow tongue, and gingerbread among other things. My style stems from cuisines emphasizing bold Mediterranean/Caspian and Western European flavors. In my free time I enjoy hiking with my mom, playing guitar, and are completely obsessed with my 7.5 pound sweet angel dachshund/chihuahua, ZsaZsa.
