Abbi Merriss

Since her restaurant, Bluebeard, launched in 2012, Abbi Merriss has quietly ascended the list of the best chefs in the Midwest. A James Beard Foundation-nominated chef for five consecutive years (2016-20), Abbi’s genius lay in her ability to find that elusive sweet spot where sophistication and simplicity overlap. She blends the familiar with the unexpected, the classical with the unorthodox, the comforting mainstays of the Midwest with exotic and eclectic international flavors.
