Executive chef Jeffrey “Cheffrey” Wilson brings an accomplished background and diverse culinary interests to his menu at Americana. A native of the south, Wilson trained at the renowned Culinary Institute of America and then moved to New York City upon graduation to pursue his career. Working in culinary hot spots such as the ’21’ Club and Battery Gardens and as executive chef at Gramercy 24 exposed Wilson to the diverse gastronomical delights the city had to offer, helping develop his unique sensibility. After ten years of working in the fast pace of New York, Wilson and his wife decided to move to Seattle to enjoy a different rhythm of life. Table 219 hired him to develop the menu, and he became a partner shortly thereafter. Four years later, he is now sole owner and has made the restaurant his own with menu enhancements, a remodel, and a name change. Wilson looks forward to the future of Americana with excitement about the menu and the energy from the surrounding community.
