Chicago native Adam Siegel has worked for three James Beard Award-winning chefs. Formative training came with his mentor, Paul Bartolotta, at Spiaggia in Chicago.

Siegel returned to open Olives in Washington D.C., with Todd English. In 2000, he was named chef de cuisine for Bartolotta’s Lake Park Bistro in Milwaukee.
