Jenna grew up in California’s Central Valley and was exposed to seasonal eating at an early age. Her family owns restaurants in Marin and Los Angeles, where she cut her teeth before moving to New York City where she discovered that she wanted to build a career in the restaurant industry. Throughout her career, she has been fortunate enough to work with a lot of powerful women, both in the kitchen and on the floor. Jenna is eager to be working side-by-side with Lauren, having two badass women running the front of the house at Wildseed. “As an omnivore, I am excited about the concept and love the idea of using the fresh, high quality produce that we have access to in the Bay Area. The beet poke is my favorite dish on the menu, and I have even made the dish at home before. The beet takes on the texture of tuna, and is really spot-on and satisfying.” As with Belga, Jenna loves that Wildseed will be a neighborhood spot that offers an abundance of outdoor seating and thinks that this concept will resonate with our previous guests, as well as new ones. She looks forward to seeing the bar packed full of people on a Friday night and wants this restaurant to be full of familiar faces.
