Chef Biography

Anne graduated from Columbia University with a degree in Anthropology in the late 70’s, and spent several years doing field work in Africa and Nepal.  During this time, she became interested in food and its preparation. 

Upon returning to New York City, she began her formal food training as an unpaid apprentice in several restaurants and eventually became the brunch, pastry, and head chef at Vanessa in Greenwich Village.  It was there that food critic Mimi Sheraton first singled Rosenzweig out for her originality and creativity.

In 1985 she opened Acadia, and Great Chefs discovered her in 1994 where they taped several dishes for their Great Chefs of the East television series.  Shortly thereafter, she was passed over by the Clinton’s as their White House chef.  In 1995 she opened the Lobster Club, and in 2001 she opened “Inside” in New York City, until 2006.
