The StarChefs Rising Star Game Changer Award presented by S. Pellegrnio celebrates a chef who's leadership is boldly advancing the restaurant industry - whether it's through boundary-pushing cuisine, an innovative dining format, or a revolutionary business idea.

2017 New York City Rising Star Greg Baxtrom took years of avant-garde, brigade-style training and added the spirit of a Brooklyn backyard. Baxtrom delivers the fireworks of a progressive tasting menu in an approachable, affordable à la carte format. He’s a confident cook, comfortable in the realm of experimentation (think wildly unfamiliar carrot crepes and clams) and ingenious at making the practical ethereal (he turns a bumper crop of greens into radish top gazpacho). And he does it all without pretense or fanfare at a destination-worthy neighborhood spot, so full of charm and brave cooking, that you can’t help keep it to yourself. Baxtrom could have picked any city, any style of restaurant to make his own, and he chose to make a home for himself—and everyone else—in Brooklyn. For that, he was presented with StarChefs 2017 Rising Star Game Changer Award.
