Abraham Conlon

Chef/Co-owner of Eat Fat Rice in Chicago

Abraham Conlon Biography

Abraham Conlon is the head chef and co-owner of Eat Fat Rice a globally- inspired restaurant in Chicago.

Beginning a professional cooking career at the age of 15, Conlon gained knowledge of classic sensibilities early on. His understanding of French technique and refinement bloomed under the disciples of Fredy Giradet and Grey Kunz, from which he continued his classical training at the Culinary Institute of America while also studying fusion techniques under Norman Van Aken.

The next stage in Conlon’s career found him running Chez Asian Bistro in the Dominican Republic, melding traditional Southeast Asian styles with local ingredients, and then Augustine’s at Fredericksburg Square in Virginia, where he became the youngest Chef to be awarded a Four Diamond Award by AAA.

Upon arriving in Chicago, Abe founded X-marx, an underground experience exploring modern techniques as well as world home-style cuisines.

Now, his new venture Fat Rice is a return to roots, harmonizing the rich influence of Abe’s upbringing and heritage with a thirst for culinary exploration and preservation, focusing on food from modest traditions, prepared with an immense respect for ritual, custom, and technique.

In 2017, Conlon was nominated for a James Beard award for excellence in cuisine.
