Years of Participation
Originally from Cincinnati, Randolph received training from New England Culinary Institute, after which he worked at Peninsula Grill in Charleston, and Michelin-starred Moto and M. Henry in Chicago. Since his arrival in St. Louis (his wife and business partner Liz's hometown) in 2008, Randolph has opened his wildly popular, breakfast/brunch restaurant, Half & Half, which offers traditional breakfast options, as well as interesting dishes that push the bounds of the a.m. meal. The duo will open a second Half & Half location this summer in Webster Groves, MO. Next came, Público, his Latin-inspired, wood-fire cantina restaurant, offering traditional Mexican and South American dishes with contemporary influences. In Fall 2017, he opened his most ambitious concept to date with Privado, a culinary idea house. The weekends-only redefines fine dining in St. Louis with a 12-15 course tasting menu with only 16 seats.
