Hunter Moore

Executive Chef & Managing Partner, Parson's Chicken & Fish

Hunter Moore got his first professional job at a cheeseburger joint in Florida at sixteen. He moved to Champaign-Urbana after high school, where – while working at mediocre Italian and vegan spots – he began to think creatively about food. From there, he moved to Chicago to attend culinary school, and once out of school, Moore worked his way through some of the cityʼs best kitchens, including Girl and the Goat and Lula Cafe, deepening both his knowledge of and passion for the craft of quality ingredients and seasonality, as well as cooking and hospitality in general. Hunter opened Parsonʼs Chicken & Fish in May of 2013, creating an evolving seasonal menu that has received much, much acclaim, overseeing a (small) kitchen that has been perpetually crushed since opening, all the while remaining one of the nicest guys youʼll ever meet.
