Chef John GouletteExecutive Chef

The culinary team is led by Chef John Goulette, a native of Massachusetts. Early in his professional career was mentored by Ralph Conte in Rhode Island and subsequently moved to New York City where he worked for 3-star Michelin restaurants and New York Times award winners. In the spirit of “just keep cooking” (favorite quote from his mentor, Ralph Conte). Goulette joined the 1881 team inspired by his opportunity in San Francisco to “follow the seasons, pushing myself to find the best locally sourced product and then preparing food in a way that is both welcoming and memorable.”
