Executive Chef, Alexandria
Lucy is an integral part of the Thompson team and has been working with Gabe and Katherine since 2013, when she was on the opening line at L’Apicio. She started as garde manger and worked her way up to executive sous chef. She’s a leader in the kitchen and has flexed her skills at Fausto in Brooklyn and also holds the honor of being the first female butcher at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. A veteran of restaurant openings, Lucy has been the Chef de Cuisine at Falls Church since the beginning, and shaped much of the menu — and the culinary team — during her tenure there.
