David Tetzloff

G. Michael’s executive chef David Tetzloff quickly worked his way up the food chain at this renowned Columbus bistro, starting as sous chef in 1999 before being promoted to executive chef in 2000.

He earned his A.O.S. in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University (Charleston, SC) in 1996. While in Charleston, he was one of five young chefs selected to assist Beard-nominated chef Louis Osteen in the creation of his cookbook, Charleston Cuisine: Recipes from a Low Country Chef (1999).

David worked in several fine Charleston restaurants before moving to Columbus in 1999, bringing his talent to the kitchen (and delighted guests) of G. Michael’s.
