Steve Day

Steve began to cook family meals as a child and continued to develop a keen interest in food tastes and textures. When his family moved to London in 2006, he decided to formalize his training at Le Cordon Bleu in London. There he learned classic French culinary techniques and earned the highly coveted Diplome De Cuisine. During his tenure overseas, Steve travelled to over 30 countries where he experienced a variety of cultures, food and drink.

The culmination of these experiences provided the inspiration for Plates in Raleigh. Steve’s first experience working in a commercial kitchen was with Chef/Owner Michel Roux and Head Chef Nicolas Laridan at the Michelin two-star restaurant Le Gavroche in London. Within two weeks, Steve was hooked. After Le Cordon Bleu, he was offered a position in a new restaurant being opened by Chef Nicolas Laridan. Le Bouchon Breton opened in London and Steve worked there making classic French Brasserie food for the remaining time he lived in London. After transitioning back to Raleigh, Steve was a chef in the banquet department at the Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, NC before opening Plates. He is excited to combine his love of food and travel and bring globally inspired, locally produced food to the Glenwood South area of Raleigh.
