"Cooking what nature provides"
Tradition runs strong in the heart of the kitchen at Forest Grill. Chef/Proprietor Brian Polcyn has trained under European culinary masters, and has created six highly successful restaurants in the Detroit area over the last 25 years. His unique skills and passion for old-world technique makes him one of the most renowned first generation American born chefs.
The European tradition of culinary excellence can be felt at the Forest Grill, and Chef Polcyn’s vision has lead to the creation of something unique in Birmingham, Michigan: the American Bistro. He is inspired by French, Italian, and contemporary American cuisine with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients, simplicity and flavor.
Forest Grill recently welcomed Chef Nick Janutol as our new Chef de Cuisine. Nick hails from Detroit originally, but spent his relative "culinary youth" in NY at the Culinary Institute of America, and then in the kitchen of 11 Madison Park. He spent the last two years as second in command at the renowned L2O in Chicago, and now is putting down roots back in his home town. We are thrilled to have Nick in the FG kitchen!
