Evan Blomgren – Chef & Proprietor
As a graduate of the prestigious French Culinary Institute, Chef/Proprietor Evan Blomgren combines classical training with his own rousing vision of the gastro-pub concept. This has meant taking the old favorites and updating them with the bounty of handcrafted oils, herbs, and farm-to-table fresh produce. Everything is made from scratch. Chef Evan also has a vast knowledge of brewing and of pairing spirits with food which is reflected in his constantly-rotating selection of 20 draft beers, fine wines and unique cocktails. It is of great importance to Chef Evan that the award-winning Rocky Hill Inn maintains a unique hometown feel.
Chef Blomgren honed his skills at several of Central New Jersey’s finest restaurants, including Lahiere’s in Princeton, Chamber’s Walk in Lawrenceville, The Metuchen Inn, in Metuchen, Church Street Bistro in Lambertville and across the Delaware at Martine’s in New Hope and the Cock and Bull at Peddler’s Village.
