Eric See


Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Eric See is a trained pastry chef and the twice James Beard Award Nominee chef of Ursula. Working in restaurants and hotels all through high school and college, he made a bold jump to continue to pursue his passion by moving to New York City 12 years ago, first interning for Karen Demasco at Locanda Verde before moving on to working in event production and catering, where he made a splash decorating and designing cakes, bite-sized sweets, and elaborate immersive dessert experiences for the likes of Infinity, Atlas Obscura, Dior, Beyoncé, and Fenty Beauty.

Since opening Ursula, both his food and community activism have been applauded by the industry near and far, being awarded a StarChefs Rising Star Community Chef Award in 2020, ad one of Bon Appetit’s Heads of the Table in 2021, recognizing leaders in the industry for their positive impact on the hospitality industry and his work within the queer food community.
