More about Tyler Andersen

A California native, Tyler was only 16 years old when began to learn his craft in restaurant kitchens, working under top-level Chicago chefs such as Charlie Trotter, two-time James Beard award-winning Sarah Stegner and Bocuse d’Or participant George Bumbaris of Prairie Grass Café and the Ritz Carlton. While Tyler was working at the Ritz, the restaurant received the highest Zagat rating and a Mobil Five-Star rank. Following Stegner and Bumbaris to the Café, Tyler helped the restaurant earn recognition from Bon Appetit magazine as one of the 50 Hottest Restaurants in the United States. He drew similar attention (and more stars) to the restaurants at two Rock Resort properties—the Equinox in Manchester, Vermont, and the Arrabelle in Vail, Colorado—where he was executive chef and food and beverage director. More recently, Tyler gained numerous accolades for his inspired spin on regional New England fare at Pip’s at the Copper Beech Inn, a Four Diamond and Wine Enthusiast award-winning restaurant in Essex, CT. Pip’s also received a five-star review in Hartford Magazine and was chosen best new restaurant in 2009 and the number two restaurant overall in the state in 2012 by Connecticut Magazinereaders. While at the Equinox in Vermont, Tyler began his love affair with the farms and food artisans and the regional cooking of New England. He carried on his support of these growers at Pip’s, where he served sustainable seafood and meats, fruits and vegetables that were raised, foraged, farmed or produced within a 150-mile radius of the inn. At Millwright’s, Tyler and his talented restaurant team received perfect scoring reviews from The New York TimesConnecticut Magazine and Hartford Magazine. Chef Tyler has twice (2014, 2015) been nominated for the prestigious Best Chef Northeast James Beard Award, and in 2014 was named Chef of the Year by the Connecticut Restaurant Association.
