The Chef

At the helm of the kitchen in the Soho Grand, Chef Elliot Cunniff oversees menus for in-room dining, catering and special events, private dinners, the Grand Bar & Lounge and the Club Room.

Born in upstate New York, Cunniff successfully established himself in the state’s capital and was named “Rising Star Chef” by the Albany Chef’s Food and Wine Festival at the young age of 25. Shortly after, Cunniff moved to New York City to accept a position with renowned French culinary personality, Daniel Boulud at his signature restaurant. From there he went on to run the kitchen at DB Bistro, before he was sought out by American Chef and Restauranteur David Burke, for whom he worked with for many years refining a modern eye for American cuisine.
