CHEF DAVE KROG

Born and raised in Tampa, FL, Chef Dave Krog discovered his love of cooking at an early age. Living with his grandmother, who was diabetic, David began to cook healthy meals for her and soon decided he wanted to become a Chef. After moving to Memphis, TN, at the age of 18, he worked in several different kitchens before enrolling in Memphis Culinary Academy. He then began an apprenticeship under Lynn Kennedy at La Tourelle. Chef Krog has been rooted firmly in the Memphis culinary scene ever since. Following his apprenticeship, he became Sous Chef of La Tourelle and went on to be the Executive Chef at Madidi, owned by Actor Morgan Freeman and Attorney Bill Luckett, in Clarksdale, MS. Returning to Tennessee in 2005, David held positions at local staples including Bari, Erling Jensen's, Terrace at River Inn, and as Executive Chef at Interim Restaurant & Bar.

With a heavy heart, he left Interim to devote his time to opening his own restaurant. While in pursuit of his dream and working as a private chef in many of your homes, the idea for his pop-up, Gallery, was born.  @gallery_901  influenced the creation of the "counter seat" at dory.

Krog considers himself a Neo Traditionalist. Working in direct correlation with local farms he honors the farmer in every step of the process to produce the highest quality, ingredient-driven meal for guests.

 

Chef Dave Krog helps build culinary communities- from fine dining restaurants such as the highly anticipated dory, coming to Brookhaven Circle this spring, to community efforts like the 275 Food Project which houses the GroundUp Initiative. His focus is on local food sourcing, diversifying kitchens with young food entrepreneurs of color, and creating positive social experiences.
