Executive Chef Nick Blair
The Grand Union Hotel is happy to announce the appointment of Chef Nicholas Blair as the new Executive Chef of the Union Grille Restaurant. Arriving in Montana by way of Wisconsin, Chef Nick was most recently Executive Chef at Lauerman House, a Bed & Breakfast in Wisconsin. Chef Nick's passionate interest in food led him to train under renowned Italian Chef Carmelo, in New Orleans. Rising quickly up the ranks, he was then able to obtain the coveted spot of Sous Chef at Beau Chen Country Club under the direction of famed French Chef, Hosie Bourgeois, voted one of New Orleans's Top Chefs. At the Union Grille, Chef Nick will focus on a Farm-to-Table approach, blending Old-World French techniques with Cajun flair, mixing in modern American and Asian influences for a fusion-inspired cuisine. As a lover of seafood, Chef Nick hopes to bring the flavors of the ocean to the Union Grille Restaurant.
