Público, Randolfi's, Half & Half | St. Louis, MO
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 opened 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. He opened Randolfi's in fall 2015 as an old school approach to the classic Italian dining experience of the 50s and 60s with his new school of thought.
