A couple of weeks ago, I received an invitation to visit Creo’ Restaurant, to check out their new menu offerings. They have a new Executive Chef, Eric Sell who has been tasked with revitalizing the seasonal menu that was released in mid-May. The new menu features delicious salads, flatbreads and entrees that include fresh ingredients from sustainable farms, amongst some of their other favorite dishes, and I was super stoked to go check it out because we’ve had a number of amazing meals at Creo’ in the past!

For Creo’s Executive Chef Eric Sell, his style is apparent through his love of ginger. The 35-year-old culinary artist was born in Chicago. Hailing from the meatpacking capital of the world would lead one to assume beef to be his tool of choice, but he didn’t stay in the Windy City for long.
