About Chef Keith Meyer
After 10 years in the financial world, Chef Keith decided to pursue his passion for cooking. He moved to New York City and attended the French Culinary Institute.
After graduating, he furthered his craft in New York at San Domenico and Lever House, both Michelin star restaurants, under notable chefs Odetta Fada and Dan Silverman, respectively.
After moving to Southwest Florida, Chef Keith soon became a Punta Gorda favorite, serving for six years as Trabue’s executive chef/general manager. His finance background helped him run both the front and the back of a chef-driven house where he could be intensely hands-on and never had to sacrifice quality.
Chef Keith utilizes French techniques while keeping the menu fresh, varied and approachable. He continues his practice of visiting the dining room to reveal cooking techniques and share in guests’ satisfaction.
Chef Keith is married to NBC2 News Anchor Stacey Deffenbaugh and they reside in Punta Gorda, Florida.
