MEGAN LOGANExecutive Chef | Nick + Stef's
A native of Thousand Oaks, CA, Megan Logan's fondest childhood memories were of family dinners and cooking with her mother. At 15, she officially joined the culinary world as a server in a local restaurant however the fast paced environment of the kitchen beckoned. After high school, she enrolled at the prestigious Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, CA. While working on her degree, Logan completed an externship at Nick & Stef's Steakhouse which proved to be the start of a long and fruitful relationship with Patina Restaurant Group. After graduating in 2003, Logan continued her hands-on training with Patina Restaurant Group, working with the culinary programs at the Hollywood Bowl before moving on to Joachim Splichal's flagship restaurant, Patina. Logan rose through the kitchen ranks to the role of sous chef during her 4 ½ years at Patina, then executive chef at Nick & Stef's Steakhouse and now, Cafe Pinot.
Combining classic French technique with her love of food cultures from around the world, Logan enjoys creating simply prepared dishes with the freshest ingredients from local farmers’ markets. According to Logan, when working with good ingredients "less is always more."
