Partner / Executive Chef
Born in Opelika, Alabama, Chef Jeremy Conner grew up and began his career in the kitchens of Pensacola, Florida, before flourishing as a chef in Lafayette, Louisiana. His resulting diversified perspective on Southern food culture and Gulf Coast seafood flavors allows him to craft his own unique cuisine.
For years, Chef Conner has set out to follow the trails of his ingredients back to the people and the stories at their origins. His Humble Fish dinner series and Gulf of Mexico sea salt business, Cellar Salt Co. are some of the results of these efforts, and he remains in search of stories about all things food and South. Now, Chef Conner is ready to share those stories with patrons of Spoonbill Watering Hole & Restaurant.
