Meet The Chef
Originally from the San Francisco East Bay, Chef Amy Simpson relocated to Incline Village in 1991 after graduating from the California Culinary Academy. She immediately felt at home and began to pursue her culinary dreams.
Chef Amy opened the original Jack Rabbit Moon in 1995 and instantly enjoyed acclaim from locals as well as seasonal patrons. She became recognized for creating innovative and approachable dishes, using the finest quality ingredients. Her precise execution showcases her skill, knowledge and vision that impresses both the palate and the eye.
After several years at the initial location, Chef Amy took advantage of an opportunity to completely renovate and design a space that Jack Rabbit Moon has called home since 2009. During the construction hiatus, Chef Amy attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in Napa Valley and successfully completed her Level 1 sommelier certification, expanding her prowess from the kitchen to the cellar. This summer, Chef Amy is developing a wine program that will focus primarily on French and American wines which will compliment Jack Rabbit Moon's diverse seasonal fare.
Together with her professional and focused staff, Chef Amy is dedicated to providing an exceptional culinary experience with a menu that changes every few weeks in order to highlight seasonal selections, but also features constantly craved long-time favorites.
