An Eric Greenspan Concept
Eric Greenspan graduated both from Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Paris; he has trained with celebrated chefs including Alain Ducasse, David Bouley, and Joachim Splichal. In 2007, Eric opened The Foundry on Melrose to similarly rave reviews and resounding success. The Foundry was runner-up for Los Angeles Magazine’s “Best New Restaurant.” Condé Nast Traveler named it Best New Restaurant; it made Los Angeles Magazine’s Top 75, as well as the “Essential 99” restaurants of then LA Weekly’s Pulitzer-winning food critic Jonathan Gold. The Foundry was also a semi-finalist for The James Beard Foundation’s Best New Restaurant in America. Eric was the host of National Geographic’s “Eric Greenspan Is Hungry.” He has competed on numerous culinary competition and food-reality shows, including Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen All-Stars,” “Chopped All-Stars,” “Guy’s a Grocery Games All-Stars,” “The Next Iron Chef,” “The Next Iron Chef: Redemption,” “Iron Chef America Countdown” and “Iron Chef America” where he defeated Bobby Flay in a throw-down. Eric is the Executive Chef and owner of The Roof On Wilshire and the recently opened delivery only restaurant, Chino, an Asian/Latin concept. He lives in LA with his wife Jamie and sons, Max and Meyer.
