We are so excited to introduce you to Jessi Patuano, our executive chef.  

Simple and pure: these two words describe Jessi’s philosophy towards food, from the way it’s grown and raised, to how it’s prepared and shared. She puts intense care and thought into each dish she creates, going above and beyond to offer our guests excellent meals. Originally a Long Island girl, Jessi has been in metro Detroit for almost a decade working with some of Michigan’s best and building relationships with local farmers and purveyors who also believe in simple, pure food. We are so excited to have her knowledge and experience at Gather. She leads her team well with a strong, nurturing sprit, and we know you’ll feel that, too, when you join us around the table.


Kyle + Lea

Meet Kyle and Lea, owners of Gather. 

They grew up in metro Detroit and began dating in high school. Though life took them through California and Chicago, they always carried with them the dream of opening a restaurant in their home city. Fast forward to May 2017 and the dream that began in college is now a reality: Gather. Kyle and Lea invite you to their community table to enjoy comforting, local food in a warm, friendly space. Come by anytime and share a meal with the Gather family.
