About Cody Lucchesi

Cody Lucchesi is the chef de cuisine of Rosswood, having previously worked at Southpark Seafood. As chef de cuisine, Lucchesi helms day-to-day operations including creating and overseeing the preparation of new recipes, liaising with suppliers, and updating menus. A Los Angeles native, Lucchesi spent time in a string of restaurants in Santa Monica and Hollywood before moving to Portland in 2006. His penchant for sustainable and locally-sourced foods influenced his decision to briefly leave the restaurant industry to receive hands-on knowledge with the city’s foragers and fishermen at Cascade Organic before returning to the kitchen at Rosswood. Chef Lucchesi is also partnered in the new Portland Pop-up restaurant Wanna Fight? - run out of Ship Ahoy Tavern, serving a modernist-meets-Big Mac menu.
