Geoff’s awards and accolades include:
Charlie Trotters: "It was Felsenthal who came up with the delicious juicy duck breast rolled around a filling of shiitake, cremini, and portobello mushrooms. Accompanying it are crisp fingers of deep-fried salsify, a pancake of celery root and potato, and a custard of spinach cooked in chicken stock." Chicago Magazine's first review of critically acclaimed restaurant, Charlie Trotter's.
