Executive Chef Josh Oakley
has been a mainstay of the Central Florida culinary scene since 2000, working in many notable restaurants including Ravenous Pig, Cask and Larder, Rusty Spoon, and co-founding as chef-owner The Smiling Bison in 2013, which had locations in both Orlando and Sanford. Most recently he held the position of executive chef at 1921 Mount Dora. His signature modern comfort flavors are beloved in Orlando and inspired by his frequent visits to Ashville, where he makes as many pitstops as he can to enjoy fried chicken and biscuits.
General Manager Amanda Wissig
has been in the Orlando hospitality industry for over 15 years. She considers herself an Orlando native, growing up in Dr. Phillips and Ocoee. With a resume that includes Emeril's Tchoup Chop and opening Artisan's Table, she has an extensive background and dedication to guest service. She most recently joined Good Salt in 2020 as part of Reyes Mezcaleria's team and was quickly recognized for her leadership and passion to cultivate the guest's experience. When not at The Monroe, you'll find her at home with her husband, two children, four cats, one dog, and thirty houseplants.
