Chef Paul Shoemaker represents Montrésor, Studio City’s new lively French Bistro is the brainchild of actress, producer and long-time restaurateur, Lisa Long, and designer and partner, Ann Booth Luly.
Long, originally raised in the Midwest, has made a name for herself in Los Angeles over her remarkable thirty-year career as an actress with over 77 film and television credits, and Restaurateur, spearheading the likes of L.A. top spots such as La Loggia Ristorante, Barsac Brasserie, Firenze Osteria with Top Chef fan favorite Chef Fabio Viviani, and The FLATS in Beverly Hills with Michelin starred Chef Paul Shoemaker.
Long and Booth Luly were looking for a talented up-an-coming chef to bring an equally impressive skillset focusing on French cuisine with a fresh, California twist to the Montrésor kitchen and Montrésor’s, Chef Grady Parker has worked with some of the best chefs in the industry. Parker first trained under Chef Thomas Keller at Bouchon in Las Vegas in 2004 and then worked at Robuchon at the Mansion in 2006. After 4 years on the Las Vegas strip, Parker decided to try his hand at a new concept serving a local community with a fresh sense of hospitality and French fare in Monterey and Carmel, California as the Executive Chef at De La Terra Et L’eau and as Executive Chef at Toast Bistro. New York then called out to him in 2013 and he decided to travel across the country to work under Chef David Bouley at Bouley restaurant. Parker believes that the classical training from Chef Thomas Keller paired with the avant-garde training from Chef David Bouley cultivated his style that combines traditional French cuisine with innovative technique. Chef Parker then traveled back to the West Coast as the Executive Sous Chef at the Le Meridien Delfina Hotel in Santa Monica in 2014 and then he headed over to Girasol in Studio City in 2015. Chef Grady Parker is very excited to share his incredible background in French cuisine with a refreshing perspective on California-French fusion with guests at the newly opened Montrésor.
