About Jeffrey Vance
Jeffrey Vance started out like so many others, line cooking to support his lifestyle, skateboarding and going to punk shows. He honed his skills learning classic French cooking and charcuterie in Spokane WA before rising to Chef de Cuisine at one of Seattle’s first modernist restaurants, Spur. He then opened Seattle’s Navy Strength, a proto-tiki tropical cocktail bar, and No Anchor, where his team earned a James Beard semi-finalist nod for Best New Restaurant in 2016. In May 2019 he left Seattle for sunny Southern California. He now resides in Los Angeles and is excited to make his mark on one of the most exciting dining cities in America.
