New Executive Chef Dishes
Ocean Prime's Nick Grosenbach | By Ronda M. Parag
Meet the new executive chef at Tampa's Ocean Prime — Nick Grosenbach and the cajun shrimp recipe that he shares with Metro.
Even as a child, Grosenbach knew he wanted to be a chef after receiving a cookbook from his parents in fourth grade. Grosenbach's career began as a fry cook in Illinois and after he completed a culinary program in Scottsdale, AZ, began a 10-year post at Roy's restaurant. He worked his way from dishwasher to chef partner. Grosenbach is excited about the new title at Ocean Prime.
Nick loves working with his hands and creating dishes that bring a smile to a guest's face and satisfaction to their palate. A newlywed of four months to Chelsea, Nick recommends always having olive oil, dry herbs and protein in the kitchen. His favorite ethnic food is Italian and Asian, and enjoys teaching others about the inspiring ingredients used in traditional dishes.
