Chef Erik Veney brings three decades of experience to his role as Executive Chef of Muriel’s Jackson Square. A native New Yorker, Erik got his first taste of the South as a college student at the University of Virginia. His lifelong love of cooking led him back up north where he attended Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island and earned an additional degree in the Culinary Arts. Chef Erik honed his skills at Mr. B’s Bistro under the leadership of Chef Gerard Maras and went on to hold leadership positions at Bacco, Muriel’s, Stella and Restaurant Revolution. Back home at Muriel’s, Chef Erik leads with a wealth of culinary knowledge and a passion for cooking, culminating in a delicious Creole dining experience for our guests.
