MATT HULL | EXECUTIVE CHEF

A lifelong resident of Virginia, Matt was raised among a family of cooks and gardeners. Many happy childhood summers were spent picking (and canning) produce from his grandparent’s farm. As a student, he was active in Future Farmers of America, even serving as the President of his local chapter. Today, Matt finds great pleasure crafting menus that feature the extraordinary ingredients of the Shenandoah Valley, and getting to know, visit, and collaborate with local farmers and purveyors. Matt graduated from the Culinary Institute of Virginia in 2011, and joined Zynodoa as a line cook in 2015. Since that time, he’s passionately and creatively worked his way up and now serves as Executive Chef. Matt points to several farm-fresh culinary locations as his most current culinary muses – Husk in SC, Miller Union in GA, and Blue Hill in NY. Matt spends his free time exploring Virginia’s rapidly exploding craft brewery scene and playing guitar.

JESSICA GOODE | GENERAL MANAGER

As a teenager in New England, Jessica was a standout soccer goalkeeper and her high school soccer team was ranked 8th in the nation. Her team-building skills propelled her transition into the hospitality industry, and Marriott International hired her in 2006. Jessica was rapidly promoted through a series of positions with the company. Her career with Marriott took her from Park City, UT to Boston, MA where she was named “Director of Services” for their historic landmark hotel property, the Boston Downtown Courtyard on Tremont Street. In 2013, Jessica moved to Virginia to begin working at Zynodoa, where she expanded her hospitality knowledge by developing strong connections with customers, local farmers, wineries, and breweries. After training in all positions and working with many of the restaurant’s producers, Jessica was named General Manager in 2014. In addition to her management role, Jessica spearheads Zynodoa’s beverage program, involved in the selection of the restaurant’s offerings of locally inspired cocktails, wines and craft beers.
