Chef Jim Barnhart
A native of surrounding Lorain Country, Executive Chef Jim Barnhart creates the vision for The Hotel at Oberlin's 1833 restaurant, named for the year both the college and town were founded.
In assuming his role at the culinary helm of this exciting new restaurant in Oberlin, Chef Barnhart was keen to create menus that lend themselves to comfortable gatherings and honor the surrounding Ohio farm country, nearby Lake Erie and the progressive Oberlin College environment.
Chef Barnhart describes his approach as taking on classics and "making them cool again." Guests of 1833 will see Midwestern favorites such as deviled eggs and Lake Walleye Erie. But those eggs are piped full with a cream egg mix of chives, cornichons, sweet paprika and sweet relish. And the walleye is served with a fresh citrus butter sauce and shares a plate with spring vegetable fricassee and shoestring potatoes. He's also a fan of wild plants that grow locally and greens that even many residents don't know about. They include "wild foraged ramps, a mild spring onion, which grow alongside creeks and in backyards. And there are morel mushrooms all over the place in Ohio."
Having a seven-acre farm nearby himself, Chef Barnhart's mission is to source locally as much as he can and build relationships with area farmers. He is particularly proud of his Gerber chickens that are all natural, antibiotic free and humanely ranged nearby. And don't forget to try the Muscovy ducks that are raised right in Oberlin.
Chef Barnhart worked previously at the Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square and The Ritz Carlton Cleveland.
