Gig Harbor Sip Welcomes Robert Green, Executive Chef

Lane Scelzi, owner and founder of Sip. at the wine bar & restaurant, is happy to announce the promotion of Chef de Cuisine Robert Green to Executive Chef.

Green, who has been sith Sip. Gig Harbor since doors opened in March 2009, brings to the position 23 years of culinary experience in restaurants, hotels and country clubs across the United States.

To say Chef Green has enjoyed a varied, colorful career is an understatement. He went from the U.S. Marine Corps to French culinary school, and then apprenticed with Jim Hughes, National Chef of tje Year (1979). He also trained with renowned master of Cajun food, Chef Paul Prudhomme and Chef Mark Miller, an authority on Southwest cuisine.

Currently a proud Gig Harbor residemt, he settled in the Northwest five years ago and helmed the kitchen at Gig Harbor's award-winning Brix 25 (2004-2005) before becoming Sip.'s Chef de Cuisine.

His culinary philosophy can best be summed up in three words: "Simple is better." Green combines classical technique with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients and lets the essence of the food speak for itself.

Sip. invites you to explore Chef Greens cuisine on Thursday December 10th 3-5pm at a special Ho Ho Harbor Holidays event. Enjoy Appetizer Bar and wine pours, Chef demonstration, fashion show and more as Uptown Gig Harbor celebrates Ho Ho Harbor Holidays. $40 per person. Reservations for this event should be made soon.
