Jon Schwenk was born and raised in Long Island, NY, in a household that nurtured his passion and knowledge of French cuisine naturally. His grandfather was a French chef and owned a fine restaurant on Long Island where Schwenk helped out as a young man. The Long Island native began his professional culinary career at Brasserie Le Coze in Buckhead, GA, where he developed his appetite for French cuisine under the guidance of Maggie Le Coze.
In 2007, Schwenk partnered with friend Rich Clark, to pursue the dream of opening up their own restaurant. Together they opened C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar, a fine dining southern seafood concept in Atlanta. The successes of C&S led them to open a second restaurant, the more casual restaurant concept, Hugo's Oyster Bar, opened in Roswell, GA in 2013. Schwenk handles the back-of-the-house operations for C&S and Hugo's, focusing on the food and helping with the beverage side of the restaurants. Schwenk's insistence on quality demands that everything must be made in-house from scratch, it is crucial for him to craft the perfect meal for his guests. Schwenk makes sure that almost every ingredient in the kitchen is certified organic and locally grown. "I want the customers to be able to taste the earth in our vegetables," Schwenk says. "A lot of people think that because French food is rich that it's not healthy, and that's absolutely not true. It's fresh, heavy on vegetables, and the rich stuff is used in moderation. We feel it's important that it's organic, too."
