Sarah Wade

Chef Sarah Wade has been quietly going about serving her twists on comfort food to Boston diners since 2014, since her days at the helm of Lulu’s in Allston. In 2018 she won Food Network’s Chopped Gold Medal Games, beating out 16 competitors in a winner take all competition. She told the world she was going to use her winnings to open her own restaurant, and a year later her dream came true when she opened Stillwater on the edge of Boston’s Chinatown.

In 2023, Wade opened her second solo endeavor, Sloane’s, at the Continuum Building bringing her signature southern-inspired bites, eye-popping sweet treats, and a playful drinks menu to Allston.

An Oklahoma native, she takes inspiration from the home cooking she grew up with, which featured regional fresh foods and lots of butter. “Eating food from my childhood gives me warm and fuzzies, and that is what I want to pass to our guests.”

Wade has traveled throughout the country working in Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, New York, and Connecticut. Her food has received many accolades including winning the 2016 Boston Brunch Battle, Best Brunches in Boston, 25 Best Restaurants in Boston from Dream Vacation Magazine, and has been featured on BuzzFeed. She has also been featured on The Phantom Gourmet, Wicked Bites and on The Boston Chronicle.

When not in the restaurant, you can find her on a bike in spin class or sitting on a boat listening to 90s country.
