Lou Kolbauer is the owner and creative mind behind this local favorite. Chive opened in a small space on Old Dixie Highway in 2013. It quickly became a favorite for Quick, Creative Cuisine and a popular place for lunch. Lou earned the honor of Top Chef for Vero Beach in 2013. Our popularity grew, the menu expanded to include a suggestion menu for the novice customer. A second location was opened on Royal Palm Pointe in 2014 and expanded to offer more seating. In late 2018, Chive moved to it’s current location on Miracle Mile which includes a full service bar, even more seating, and an expanded patio for dining.
Prior to opening each location, Lou spent months painting, cleaning, & personally designing all the artwork throughout the restaurant. Take a few minutes to enjoy the recycled pallets, turned artwork. We hope you feel welcome & enjoy the restaurant as much as we do. We value your opinion & use your feedback to move towards becoming your choice for quick, creative cuisine in Vero Beach.
