Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio is, above anything, delicious Italian and pasta perfection. Located in Chicago's West Loop and the creation of Chef Sarah Grueneberg, you can now try your hand at matching Chef Sarah's skills at home!
Since her childhood cooking with her grandparents on their ranch in Victoria, Texas, Sarah Grueneberg knew she was destined to work in the culinary world. Originally from Houston, Grueneberg moved to Chicago in 2005 to join the team at the award-winning Spiaggia under the leadership of Tony Mantuano. Grueneberg has traveled throughout Italy, Asia, Europe and the U.S., which has inspired her culinary approach of “following the food” and truly understanding “the dish” by knowing the people and culture that created it.
In addition to being a contestant on Top Chef, Grueneberg has been awarded nearly every restaurant accolade under the sun including the prestigious James Beard award of one of the Best Chefs in America.
