Markus Glocker was born in upper Austria and grew up working in his family’s hotel, where his appreciation for hospitality became a passion. After graduating culinary school in Austria, Markus joined Munich’s renowned Restaurant Vier Jahreszeiten. Over the years, he excelled in top kitchens around the world including Restaurant Eckart Witzigmann in Berlin, Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago, Restaurant Steirereck Vienna, and Gordon Ramsay in London and New York (which earned two Michelin stars during his tenure there). Markus’s talent finds full expression at Bâtard, the fine dining Tribeca restaurant he opened in partnership with restaurateur Drew Nieporent. After its May 2014 debut, Bâtard earned a three-star rating from The New York Times, three stars from New York Magazine, and a coveted Michelin star, among several other stellar reviews. In early fall 2018, Markus took on the kitchen at Augustine, located at The Beekman Hotel in the Financial District, where the Executive Chef brings back classic dishes from his native Austria combined with traditional french cooking. A chic and casual dining experience in a beautiful bistro setting that offers daily delight. Paris meets Vienna.
