John Hogan




Chef John Hogan is a fixture in the Chicago culinary community. He started his career at four-star Everest, Kikki’s Bistro and the Park Avenue Cafe. When he opened his own restaurant, Savarin, the Chicago Tribune named Hogan as one of the "Top 10 Chefs in Chicago" while Travel + Leisure honored Savarin with “America’s Top 50 Restaurants.” Esquire magazine also honored Savarin with “Best Restaurant of 1999.” Just as steak houses exploded across the country, Hogan took the helm at Keefer’s when it launched in 2001, developing a signature menu of Chicago-style dishes inspired by American classics. At River Roast, Hogan is sharing his straightforward but unique brand of cooking and collaborating with Tony Mantuano, a friend for more than 20 years.
