  “As I continue my culinary growth and exploration, I invite you to enjoy a unique fine dining experience with my staff and me. Come share our passion….”
Chef Josh Monroe


Chef Josh grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and began his culinary career working for his father’s restaurant. The chef there was impressed with him and encouraged him to continue in the profession. After working his way up to kitchen manager in a private dinner club, Josh decided to expand his knowledge with a formal culinary training by attending AB-Tech Culinary Institute.

There he lead the culinary Olympic team to gold medals and was recognized by the American Culinary Foundation. With this recognition he quickly moved to positions at four star establishments including Richmond Hill Inn.

Chef Josh brought his passion for fresh quality ingredients to the Chef’s Table in April 2006. Here he had the freedom to express his personal culinary vision and share his dedication to fresh, local grown, organic products with his patrons.

In October of 2009 Chef Josh and his wife Jenn were given the opportunity to purchase the Chefs Table and jumped at the offer. Since then they have adopted the Slow Food Movement growing many of the vegetables used in the restaurant in their own personal garden when season permits. Chef Josh is also a continued supporter of local farms and you may see him on any given day at any one of Haywood County’s local farmers market.

The menu at the Chef’s Table changes seasonally and specials are offered on a regular basis to take advantage of ingredients at their peak freshness.

Chef Josh also has an ever growing passion for wine. He enjoys exploring new wines and takes pride in offering his patrons with one of the best wine lists in Haywood County. He is always excited about suggesting a wine to compliment your meal.

The Chefs Table offers an open kitchen for a relaxed yet exciting dining experience. When given the opportunity Chef Josh enjoys interacting with his guests so be sure to make the Chefs Table your next dining destination.
