The Silverspoon Restaurant Welcomes Back Executive Chef Ron Silverberg!
Wayne, PA - May, 2017
Ron Silverberg, a Narberth PA native, began his cooking career long before his first official restaurant job (Plate in Ardmore) at age 15. He remembers preparing the daily dinner salad for his parents and sisters, even cutting veggies and mixing his own creations at the young age of 7.
An adventure teen tour, hiking the northern Mediterranean coast, sealed his commitment to a cook's life when he found he could trade all his scheduled camping chores for the other kids' cooking chores. Ron literally cooked his way from Barcelona to Rome (along with a very nice French girl with similar interests) before 10th grade.
To pursue his culinary education Ron moved to San Francisco to attend prestigious California Culinary Academy. With culinary class in the morning from 7 until noon, he worked after school and evenings in the storied Mission District at Ramblas Tapas, where he was ultimately promoted to Sous Chef. Upon graduation, Ron worked at several San Francisco landmarks including Delfina (under James Beard Winning Chef Craig Stoll), and award-winning Maverick. These were followed by a three year stay at Mission Beach Cafe, where, as Chef, the restaurant was awarded “Best Brunch in San Francisco.”
Chef Ron returned to Philadelphia in 2010 to help his family open The Silverspoon at its current location. He redesigned the small kitchen, wrote the first menus and hired the opening staff. Most importantly, Ron converted the “Spoon” to a creative Contemporary American, full service restaurant while building upon the original Silverspoon's commitment to seasonal, scratch, and sustainably-sourced food. After completion of this mission, Ron set off for new opportunities and experience in Philly's burgeoning restaurant scene where he became Sous Chef at a.Kitchen working under Bryan Sikora, And later working as Chef de Cuisine at Ela in Queen Village under Jason Cichonski. Most recently Ron was Executive Chef at Hawthornes in South Philly.
The Silverspoon is thrilled to have Ron back at the helm as Executive Chef. He describes his style as a blend of innovative and classical. With a foundation of French culinary principles, a commitment to seasonal products, and a growing supply of outstanding regional ingredients, his goal is to create simple, flavorful, exceptional food that entices and delights all the senses.
