  • Chef Greg White Background

    Greg Godfrey vCard

    Executive Chef

    As seen on some reality TV shows, some chefs take total control of the kitchen by shouting and pointing fingers. Not Chef Godfrey. He prefers to lead by example, understanding that perfection comes through integrity, dedication and hard work. After moving to Fredericton from his native Lunenberg, NS to attend St. Thomas University, Godfrey soon realized his real passion lay in fine food. Now a Red Seal certified chef with more than 16 years experience, Godfrey has received many accolades, including leading the team at “rustica” (Canmore’s Silvertip Golf Resort) when it was voted the #1 restaurant in all of Bow Valley, Alberta! He and his wife and two sons were seeking the opportunity to make Fredericton their home again, and we are thrilled they did.
