Chez (shay) Genèse (zheh-ness)

The Place of Genesis - The Place of New Beginnings

At Chez Genèse we believe the desire to find meaning and fulfilling work is woven into basic human need and nature, and that every person has a skill set to contribute.


It is our goal, as a team, to come alongside incredible individuals who (due to an intellectual or developmental disability) may oftentimes have the odds stacked against them in the workforce, to help develop and celebrate their own interests and potential.

We believe food brings people together.

Chez Genèse is staffed by a diverse team of individuals who dedicate themselves to enjoying each other while serving our guests. We strongly believe in the connection that occurs across the table and hope that you feel at home in our space and with our team!

Welcome to our family.

We are thankful for the community of people that have partnered with us to make Chez Genèse what it is! Our local vendor partners include:
