TONIGHT'S GUEST CHEF: Rod Knight of Thursday's

Originally from Danbury, Conn., Chef Rod Knight of Thursday’s Ft. Lauderdale, began his culinary career at home and cooking for friends in 1995. When his family began realizing that his talent was unique, fresh, and creative; they suggested he seek a more suitable outlet to hone his skills. He later enrolled in a local school accredited by Johnson and Wales.

fter graduating in 1999, Chef Rod went on to work for Chuck’s Steak House in Danbury, a popular stint for a commis wanting to learn how to work in a high volume establishment. In 2002, he joined the Sedexho operated Elderado Bar and Grill as a kitchen manager/ Banquet Chef. He was later offered the position in 2006 to work at the Geronimo Bar and Grill, a high end Southwestern American fusion concept in downtown New Haven. Chef Rod brought to the new establishment his management and kitchen skills which helped propel the restaurant into the role as a New Haven landmark. . After a strong history of working in the industry up north, he headed to Miami to further his career in culinary adventures.

In 2010, a more mature and seasoned chef found Miami to be welcoming and open to his skills as the new “kid on the block”. He had worked at several restaurants like Icebox Cafe, the Ritz Carlton South Beach, and the South Beach Hotel Group, all the while creating dishes that had hints of exotic flavors while staying true to his New England roots. The marriage between Northeast and South Florida tastes provided a unique path towards a successful career in Miami. While in the city, he continued to work on an online platform unique for chefs that is still in the making. Not much can be said as of yet, because much is still in development. However, this site promises to be what every chef might be using in the very near future. “It’s not about recipes, but rather about needs,” says Chef Rod.

In 2014, Chef Rod turned his sights towards Fort Lauderdale, a more relaxed and casual beach city. His first stint was at the newly renovated Shooter’s Waterfront where he was instrumental in building up the American classic brunch buffet. Within the year, he was offered a position at Thursday’s, the newest French-American restaurant that is known for its landmark status in Montreal, Canada. Chef Rod is grateful to work under Executive Chef Olivier Rebuffel from Paris whose brings decades of experience to the establishment. Thursday’s menu never disappoints those seeking French cuisine. Owned by the Ragueneau family, this father and daughter combination has reworked the French concept with a twist and brought it to the American palate. Thursday’s can be found on Las Olas Boulevard, the most sought-after address in the city. Reservations are recommended.
