Stephen Ullrich, Executive Chef | The Strand Bar & Grill at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort
Executive Chef of The Strand Bar & Grill at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, Stephen Ullrich, combines a passion for fresh ingredients with his enthusiasm of Miami to provide guests with a memorable dining experience.
A Miami native, Ullrich’s extensive travels through Europe as a teenager, where fine dining experiences cemented his appetite for the culinary arts. A Boston College graduate, Ullrich moved back to Miami to begin his pursuit at Red Fish Grill. In 2011, Ullrich moved to New York and enrolled in the French Culinary Institute to pursue a Grand Diplome in Culinary Arts. While in school, he trained at notable restaurants, including Georges Mendes’ Mediterranean-inspired Aldea and Danny Meyer’s acclaimed Gramercy Tavern.
After graduating Ullrich worked at some of New York’s top restaurants, including Colicchio & Sons, Manzanilla, and was executive sous chef at Wolfgang Ban’s Seasonal when the restaurant was awarded a Michelin Star. Ullrich also spent time at L’Ambroisie, a three Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris where he refined his classic French technique.
In 2015, Ullrich’s culinary journey moved him back to Miami to oversee culinary operations at Tom Colicchio’s since-closed Beachcraft at the 1 Hotel South Beach. He brings a fresh take and seasoned portfolio to the kitchen at The Strand Bar & Grill opening November 2017. The new eatery will showcase a menu of new American fare, infused with innovative touches highlighting South Florida’s organic community.
Ullrich currently resides in Miami with his wife Rafaela and new baby, Saskia, and their four-legged friend, Fritz.
