Charlie Palmer is an American celebrity chef, restaurateur, hotel owner and author. Palmer is known for his progressive American style of cooking and entrepreneurship. Charlie Palmer grew up in the small town of Smyrna in upstate New York.
After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, Palmer became the head chef at the River Café in Brooklyn. In 1988, Palmer opened his first restaurant, Aureole, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This was soon followed by the openings of several new ventures, including Metrazur in Grand Central Terminal, a second Aureole in Las Vegas, and Charlie Palmer Steak in Washington, D.C. His culinary empire has continued to expand ever since, with further locations across the country, as well as Next Vintage, his chain of retail wine stores. In 2009, Palmer's flagship restaurant Aureole moved from a townhouse on East 61st Street to the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park.
Charlie Palmer was one of sixteen chefs honored in the 1993 PBS series, Cooking with Master Chefs: Hosted by Julia Child and is featured in the cookbook derived from the series.
