CHEF ANTHONY KUEPER ANNOUNCED AS 2022 JAMES BEARD AWARD SEMIFINALIST FOR BEST CHEF: MIDWEST

Chef Anthony Kueper

Growing up in a military family Anthony was exposed to different cultures and their cuisines at an early age. His first favorite food was Pommes Frites in the Netherlands where he was born. He enjoyed delicious food with a high level of service with his father in a variety of fine dining establishments on the military bases where they were stationed.

As a teenager, he learned to love to experiment with food. After a couple of basic cooking classes during a summer in high school, he began cooking for family and friends. Gaining experience in cooking in many jobs in the fast-food industry, Anthony finally landed his first real gig at the Bistro at the Market in downtown Omaha. After learning some chops from Chef Kenneth Hughes, he decided to go to Culinary School. After his graduation, he spent nearly four years with the Ritz Carlton Company.

Moving to Aspen, he worked At Elevation, Main St. Bakery, and the Caribou Club. After a year and a half, he met his girlfriend Daniela and followed her to Hamburg, Germany. There he cooked at the Claasenhof, the restaurant was rated a one-star Michelin upon his arrival and was later awarded a second star during his tenure.

Upon returning to the U.S., he got married back in Aspen and moved to Beaver Creek, Colorado. He opened the Beaver Creek Lodge, then moved on to positions at Red Sky Ranch, Toscanini, Café Milano and Vin 48.

With the arrival of his twins, he moved his family back to Omaha. He spent a year working with Jon Seymour at V. Mertz. The owner Gina Sterns hired him as a Sous Chef but quickly advanced to chef status. Chef Anthony remained the Chef when Gina sold the business to a new owner.

In December 2016, Chef Anthony and his family were given the opportunity to buy Dolce, closing the deal on March 1st, 2017. With his wife Daniela and his three boys Kyenne, Mace, and Sage, Anthony will continue to run Dolce and serve customers with his wealth of knowledge and passion for food.

The food was flavorful and left you wanting your next dish, the main dish i had was a angus hanging tenderloin that was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend to anyone to sit down and eat, the Chef is very polite, nice, and has very high standards as any chef should. I will definitely be returning to this place in the future. Thank you to Dolce for having me and my roommate there to dine, and thank you to the Chef for the excellent food you made for us.

My wife and I came here for the Valentine's day course and we had a great time. The food was absolutely delicious and everything you would expect from a five star restaurant. The service here was prompt in the sense that all plates and silverware were cleared almost immediately, water was topped off before it even hit a quarter empty, and the timing of the courses was perfection. Unfortunately we did not feel very welcome here, but it was a great experience nonetheless.

Exquisite food. We had the 5 course chef's tasting menu and it was unbelievable. Each course was absolutely delicious, having chef Anthony serve us and explain each dish was a treat and we will 100% be back. Everything was cooked perfectly from the scallop first course, to the fruit dessert finale. The entire menu looked amazing and we are already planning a return trip. Perfect spot for a date night or celebration dinner. It's intimate, so reservations are recommended. The drink menu is extensive with many options. There were several things on the dinner menu I'm excited to come back and try.
