If you’ve not heard the name Cody Storts being whispered in certain epicurean circles, it’s only because he’s been keeping stealth, building his empire slowly from the ground up. After employment as a bartender at Stubrik’s and various restaurant management positions in around town, this long-time Fullerton resident came to the realization that front of the house just wasn’t his mission in life.
Polishing his acumen and techniques at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, Chef Cody has since been making great strides and flourishes as somewhat of a kitchen Ninja. Mounting a campaign to push the boundaries, he scoffs at the challenge of utilizing exotic ingredients or executing unorthodox pairings. His high-kicking conventions, limitless energy and passionate drive enabled him to concurrently head the culinary teams at The Lime Truck, LamroN Catering, Bourbon Street, Nieuport 17 and Hopscotch.
With a personal mantra that “there are no rules” when it comes to inventiveness and creativity, Cody has finally achieved his dream of owning a spot of his own. Grits Fullerton is brought to life off the beaten Downtown Fullerton path and offers a homestyle southern inspired brunch. Here he stays true to the “no rules” attitude that has made him a game changer in the OC culinary scene.
