CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (November 9, 2018)–David Wieseneck, former chef and owner of The Motley Cow restaurant in Iowa City for over 15 years, has been named chef de cuisine of The Class Act Restaurant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Wieseneck was most recently sharpening his creative edge at Maggie’s Farm Pizza in Iowa City, and now Class Act Restaurant guests will have the opportunity to experience both his culinary creativity and passion for local ingredients.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Kirkwood culinary team,” said Wieseneck.

“The professionalism of the hotel and restaurant staff is truly impressive, and the energy brought to our kitchen by the culinary students makes this a very unique work environment. On top of that, partnering with the Kirkwood Agriculture Sciences program pushes The Class Act far ahead of the field in terms of local and seasonal cooking, foundations to which I’m deeply committed.”

In addition to the talents of Chef Wieseneck, The Class Act has redesigned their dinner menu to feature shareable, seasonal plates. This also includes a classics menu that will continue to offer all the traditional items that diners at The Class Act have grown to love.
