Justin Grilli – Chef
Chef Justin Grilli brings talent and passion for cooking along with more than 10 years of culinary experience to Rockland Place. His prior positions include Campus Chef at DuPont and Catering Director and Dining Room Manager at Longwood Gardens. When he worked for The Four Dogs Tavern in Marshallton, PA, he competed against 74 other restaurants and won the grand prize at the Chester County Chili Festival in 2012.
In addition to planning and preparing tasty meals for our residents, Justin enjoys educating others in the area of healthy dining, including how to make wise menu choices, how to employ healthy cooking techniques and how to substitute healthy, fresh and wholesome ingredients for those that are processed or otherwise high in fat, sodium, calories and cholesterol.
Justin’s flair for good cooking doesn’t end when he leaves our kitchen. He plans and executes his own family’s entire weekly menu every Sunday. That way he can spend more time with his young daughter, Althea and lovely wife, Rebecca. After family and food, Justin loves music. He is a classically trained guitarist and in his spare time he enjoys playing bass guitar in a local band.
