WE LOVE FOOD
We believe in an eclectic yet approachable love for food. Our chefs draw from foundations in classic French and Italian cuisine, finding inspiration in seasonal and local ingredients that offer a modern twist to each dish. Our ever-changing menus reflect the efforts of our collaboration with unique purveyors, local farmers, and artisan producers.

Born and raised in western Massachusetts, Josh has found a natural home in this Boston rooted restaurant. Josh began his career by earning a degree in studio art and graphic design from Messiah University and spent his first decade of employment in a few creative roles as a designer. Soon his love of food and the hands-on quotidian tasks of the commercial kitchen called his name and he pursued a second degree in culinary arts from Johnson and Wales University. After honing his skills as a catering chef at the History Colorado Center and learning the finer techniques of French cooking through the guidance of Pete Ryan and his predecessor Chef Charles McDonald, Josh earned his role as executive chef of the plimoth. In this position, Josh utilizes all of his creative and technical training to bring Denver unique, local, and always seasonally inspired dishes. When he's not working hard to bring Denver a great meal, Josh spends his time golfing, riding his road bike, or exploring Colorado and the world with his family.
