Steven Redzikowski is the executive chef/co-owner of acclaimed Colorado restaurants, including OAK at Fourteenth (Boulder), Acorn (Denver), and Brider (Denver), where he oversees day-to-day operations, in addition to managing back-of-house operations and creating new menus.
Redzikowski’s eclectic new-American style of cooking has been praised on both local and national levels. In 2014 and 2015, Steve was voted Food & Wine’s “People’s Best New Chef: Southwest,” and in 2015 and 2016, he was a James Beard semifinalist for “Best Chef: Southwest.”
The Long Island native moved to Manhattan after completing culinary school and worked in some of the city’s most iconic kitchens including Le Cirque and Jean Georges before moving to Colorado to hone his skills at the award-winning Little Nell and the acclaimed Italian restaurant, Frasca. There, Redzikowski met future business partner, Bryan Dayton. In March 2010, Redzikowski reconnected with Dayton to open OAK at Fourteenth in Boulder. In 2015, OAK ranked #11 on 5280’s 25 Best Restaurants list.
