Chef Steven Brown

Four-time James Beard Semifinalist for Best Chef Midwest, Steven Brown has worked in restaurants for over 30 years—from The Chief Cafe in his hometown of Custer, SD, to the three-Michelin starred Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy.

Along the way were many local Twin Cities spots, most notably Cafe Levain and his personal favorite, The Loring Café. With each one came a learning experience filled with memories of meals served and friends made. Steven is a true local restaurateur, owning and operating Tilia and St. Genevieve in South Minneapolis, as well as in his partnership role with Giulia.

Joe Mireles

Growing up in South Texas, Joe Mireles learned how to cook and butcher at a young age and has always felt an appreciation for local sourcing of food due to his environment around hunting and fishing. After earning his degree from a Le Cordon Bleu institute, he spent time as Executive Chef in a diverse range of kitchens overseeing the day-to-day operations, elevating his skillset, and developing unique menus.

Chef Joe has worked under well-renowned Chefs William Bradley and Brian Lewis, which had a lasting impact on how he structures his kitchen and inspired his focus on the quality, history, and seasonality of food. He brings his contemporary skills, diversity of cuisines, and passion for mentoring others in the kitchen to Minneapolis as Emery’s Executive Chef.
