Memories of Charlie Trotter's Interest in Lexington and His Impact on Women in Restaurants
“Charlie Trotter brought a singular mix of elegance, service, and innovation to the restaurant world and the customer experience that set the bar high for many. He leaves a rich legacy," former Lexington College President Dr. Susan Mangels said, remembering the heyday of Charlie Trotter’s when Lexington students enjoyed field trips to his famous restaurant in Lincoln Park.
Charlie Trotter was always known for encouraging students, though his was a path of discipline and detail. Lexington student Adriana Jurado (BAS, 2008) should know. She met Trotter on a Lexington visit and landed a job at his restaurant after graduation. She worked personally with Charlie Trotter as Director of Private Functions until he closed the restaurant last year.
