Chef Joel Mahr

Joel began cooking at the age of 8, watching his grandmother cook for his family barely able to reach the stove. His grandmother taught him the importance of a roux to thicken gravies and sauces she would make. Growing up Joel began helping his grandmother more and more around the holidays. He was always the first to show up, sometime hours before the rest of his family would and right along side of his grandmother making turkey gravy for Thanksgiving.

After making sous chef at V. Mertz, Joel moved on to Dario’s brasserie, Omaha Country Club, and the French Café. Joel found himself wanting something new and interesting. Basing his technique in classical French and American, he applied at Spencer’s steakhouse. Never working in a steakhouse before Joel had the opportunity to work with prime grade and local farm meats. Local was something that started to be very important in his career. Joel’s fiancée parents own a farm in southeast Iowa. At the farm they raised pigs, cattle, and grew their own vegetables. There Joel learned how to butcher and the importance of farming.

Lot 2 is the first kitchen Joel will be the head chef of. Taking all that he has learned though out the years and applying that to a menu, that will offer seasonality ingredients, local meats, and in- house made items.
