Graham Elliot Biography

Graham Elliot is an award-winning chef, restaurateur, television personality and cookbook author. He is a judge on Bravo's "Top Chef."

In 2016, after 10 seasons with the "MasterChef" and "MasterChef Jr." franchise, Chef Elliot left the show to join Bravo’s Emmy Award winning hit cooking competitions, "Top Chef" as a full-time judge. In 2019, Graham joined Ayesha Curry and Cat Cora in a new family driven competition series on ABC, "Family Food Fight."

Elliot, a self-proclaimed "Navy brat" who has traveled the world and all fifty US states, has accrued many prestigious accolades including multiple James Beard Foundation Nominations. At age 27, Elliot became the youngest four-star chef to be named in any major U.S. city and was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chefs” in 2004. In May of 2008, Elliot opened his eponymous restaurant, Graham Elliot, which went on to become one of only 15 restaurants in the U.S. to be awarded two Michelin stars.

Along with regular TV appearances on "Good Morning America," "Access Hollywood," "The Today Show" and "Nightline," Elliot runs the eponymously named, Graham Elliot Bistro in his hometown of Chicago. Elliot sees the restaurant as an extension of his passionate personality, embodying his core belief that cooking is an artistic, creative outlet. The spot opened its doors in 2008, immediately hypnotizing the city, garnering Michelin stars in both 2011 and 2012 and a visit from President Obama.

As a life-long baseball enthusiast, Major League Baseball has recently tapped him to be the host of their MLB Grub Tour as well as their Culinary Correspondent. Elliot, an avid music lover and guitarist in his own right, is also Culinary Director of the Lollapalooza music festival, an honor he’s held for the past decade.

As of February 2018, Elliot launched his first restaurant project in Asia, Coast at MGM Cotai. In 2013, Graham decide to make a life change and focus on his health and family, and to date, has lost an amazing 150 pounds. Since then, he has run a marathon and continued to keep the weight off so that he can spend more quality time with his wife Allie and his three boys, Mylo, Conrad, and Jedediah.
