Executive Chef and Partner


Executive Chef Dan Jackson’s innovative approach to Osteria Georgi’s menu celebrates the authenticity of Italian classics, while integrating locally sourced ingredients through a creative and contemporary lens. 

Jackson, a Chapel Hill native and UNC alum, ventured to NYC after graduation and developed an illustrious 17-year culinary career in one of the highest esteemed culinary cities in America. Beginning at Eleven Madison Park, he transitioned to Union Square Events and then became the Executive Chef of the Cafes at MoMa, and Director of Culinary Fields Good Chicken. In the fall of 2020, Jackson decided to bring his culinary magic back to his roots in North Carolina, along with his wife and children.
