Upon graduating from Johnson & Wales in Providence, RI, chef Michael Gottlieb advanced to the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, MD, and the renowned Inn at Little Washington before returning home to Savannah, GA. In Savannah, Michael, along with brothers Richard and chef Laurence Gottlieb, opened Gottlieb’s Restaurant and Dessert Bar. The restaurant wasa AAA Four Diamond Awarded establishment inspired by the Gottlieb family’s famed bakery which, for over 100 years, was a Savannah tradition. After closing the restaurant in 2006, Michael settled in New Orleans where he worked for the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group for 4 years before moving on to take over the historic Rib Room in the Royal Orleans.
