EXECUTIVE CHEF & DIRECTOR OF CULINARY OPERATIONS
Recalling meals from his childhood and growing up in Michigan, executive chef Jordan Hoffman returned to his home state of Michigan in late 2015. Jordan has developed Parc’s menu to feature familiar flavors and refined expressions of Midwestern European cuisine. With classical training in metro Detroit, Jordan traveled around the world working under some of the most revered and respected chef’s including three Michelin star chef Joël Robuchon. His experience and knowledge of running fine dining kitchens from Miami to Las Vegas has come full circle with his homecoming to Michigan. Jordan has mastered the art of live-fire, wood-grilled cookery, and has infused intense layers of flavor into each dish at Parc. From homemade pastas to in-house butchery, Parc’s menu offers all diners a taste of true fresh and quality ingredients. Jordan makes it a point to source local and sustainable produce and meat. Additionally, Jordan flies in daily seafood and fish from around the world. With nightly features of dry-aged USDA prime beef and other exotic dishes, there is always something new and different for guests to enjoy.
Jordan continues to infuse levels of creativity with a seasonally changing menu pleasing the most discerning guest and providing an exceptional and memorable experience for the senses.
