Augusta Restaurant & Catering

Back to Previous
It's been said that Augusta has the best tenderloin in Iowa and one of Iowa's greatest chefs, Ben Halperin, with all kinds of delicious, locally sourced, seasonal and made-from-scratch food. He won the Top Chef Under Forty award and other various awards for different dishes at many contests. Chef Ben learned his trade with Bravo TV's award-winning Top Chef, Susan Spicer, who is the owner of two award-winning New Orleans restaurants. He also worked with Geraud Maris of The Brennans, who is now a culinary professor. Oxford is where Ben and Jeri Halperin started after being displaced by Katrina, but thanks to the local support they have opened a new restaurant in Iowa City.
