About Executive Chef Sea Kyeong Kim:
Chef Kim first realized his passion for the culinary arts while living in his hometown of Seoul, South Korea where he worked for over five years learning the ways of the kitchen at West Lake Restaurant. Chef Kim moved to New York and attended the Culinary Institute of America and worked at Aureole – Charlie Palmer’s famous New York City flagship restaurant. Later he left New York and moved to London where he had the opportunity to stage at several Michelin star restaurants throughout Europe.
In 2007, Chef Kim returned to the states and the Charlie Palmer Group in Dallas. Later, Kim was lured away to open Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale’s South Coast Plaza as the Executive Sous Chef, where he also helped launch DG Burger. Today, Chef Kim proudly carries on the role of Executive Chef, offering guests bold flavors and interesting food, created to pair beautifully with the restaurant's extensive collection of wines.
