The Chef

Chef Jeremy Luers grew up in Batesville, IN.  Chef held his first restaurant job at the popular German restaurant and inn, The Sherman House. This restaurant is a landmark in the small town and was very influential to Luers growing up. Later, Luers ventured to culinary school where he discovered his passion for Italian cuisine. He refined his craft while working at Mario Batali's much celebrated Italian restaurant, Babbo, and truly fell in love with Italian and Mediterranean fare. Upon returning to the midwest, Luers worked for a number of years at Cincinnati’s own top Italian restaurant, Boca, and also was an important contributor to the concept and menu behind Enoteca Emilia in O'Bryonville.

Chef Luers joined The Phoenix in 2013 as Executive Chef, now Luers serves as Culinary Director for The Phoenix Restaurant Group where he oversees day to day operations at The Phoenix, The Presidents Room and The National Exemplar in Mariemont.
