Embraced by yachts cruising along the Intracoastal, and a swanky dining room open to the bustling water activity with Instagram ready sunsets, Chef Russ Aaron Simon has found the perfect foil at GG’s Waterfront in Hollywood, FL for his seasonal/sustainable ethos and inspired interpretations of classic and international foods. He has, since 2000, cooked in some of the top kitchens in the Wolfgang Puck collection around the world; from Spago Beverly Hills to CUT by Wolfgang Puck in Singapore. In 2015 Chef Russ returned home to Hollywood and a year later opened American English Kitchen + Bar in his hometown. After two years ago of critical acclaim for his sophisticated rendering of comfort food he caught the attention of owners Dan and Lise-Ann Serafini who later sought him out to command the kitchen at GG’s. Russ is a collaborative chef, and his goal is to develop the talents in his kitchen. “The best ideas come from the kitchen team and there’s lots of eagerness here,” he says. “I emphasize the importance of technique which never goes out of style. I believe that chef’s who do things right are very good at conventional cooking – it’s fundamental and connects one with the world. And I live by the idea of not resting on your laurels if you want to take a restaurant to another level.”
