Chef Evan Dannells

"Evan Dannells has a place to call his own with Cadre" - Madison Magazine Review

Hailing from Kansas, Chef Evan Dannells moved to Madison in 2002 to pursue his culinary career in a community rich with farm-fresh ingredients. Evan cooked at L’Etoile, 4&20 Cafe & Bakery, Merchant, and Lucille before joining the Cadre team prior to their October 2019 reopening.

As an owner, Evan developed Cadre through his love of French cooking with a Wisconsin flair that allowed him to celebrate the seasonal ingredients and dedicated farmers that originally drew him to the Madison area.
