Chef Jon Rollo

Revolutionizing the gourmet fast-casual dining experience, Jonathan Rollo, “Commander-in-Leaf” of Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop has always had an appetite for fresh ingredients and living a healthy life. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, Rollo went on to pursue his passion for cooking by training at the world-wide leader of innovation and creativity, Le Cordon Bleu of Chicago.

After managing and cooking for the acclaimed Rose Bud Group in Chicago for two years, Rollo took his experience and unique skillset to the Patina Group in Los Angeles. Following a successive string of Patina Group developments in and out of Los Angeles, including the iconic Hollywood Bowl, Rollo embarked on his passion project in 2007 opening his first Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop.

The farm-to-face culinary concept embodies Rollo’s wellness philosophy of using local, fresh, natural and organic ingredients that are both delicious and wholesome. Creating authentic, community-based dining experiences is what separates Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop from other restaurants in the healthy-living marketplace. With a full bar including fresh craft cocktails, indoor and outdoor patio seating, and on-site chef’s garden, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop is the modern farm stand. In his free time, you can find Jon working out at Barry’s Bootcamp, training for a triathlon, and raising his daughter and son with husband, Joey Gonzalez.
