Chefs Jeff Daily and Ryan Smith
Jeff Daily and Ryan Smith are proud to follow in the tradition and exacting standards set by their esteem predecessors, Coby Lee Ming and Patrick Roney. Their vision is to craft a more modern style to Harvest’s outstanding menu.
Dailey came to Harvest roughly a year ago from Corbett’s: An American Place, where he was executive chef.
Smith started as chef de cuisine at Harvest two years ago, having previously worked at Proof on Main. He will remain chef de cuisine but add the role of overseeing special projects, possibly outside of the restaurant’s four walls.
They are proud and delighted to continue Harvest’s locally grown, farm-to-table vision.
Jim McArthur and partners (brothers) Peter and Patrick Kuhl gathered not just an extraordinarily talented team but also a group of passionate and community-minded investors to grown their downtown Louisville restaurant.
And so it was that on 23rd April 2011 Harvest opened it’s doors to an eager and excited public. Diners and accolades started rolling in and before the year was out Harvest was awarded winner of the Open Table ‘Diner’s Choice’ and in early 2012 was nominated semi-finalist in the James Beard Award for ‘Best New Restaurant’.
If you’ve never heard of the prestigious Beard award – it’s like the Oscars of the food industry! Month on month Harvest continues to receive raving attention from all sectors of the press, the public, and the food industry. Clearly, there is an appetite for Harvest’s local vision. The recent figures show over 8300 Fans on Facebook and more the 14,000 visits per month to their website.
