Megan Fitzroy

Megan Fitzroy Phelan is the co-owner and executive pastry chef at Longoven in Richmond, VA. In 2009 Megan set her sights on New York City and accepted a pastry cook position working under Dominique Ansel at Daniel Boulud’s acclaimed fine-dining restaurant, Daniel. In 2011, she joined the team at Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone’s Torrisi Italian Specialties and Parm Restaurants, where she earned critical acclaim for both her ice cream cake and pastry programs. Nearly two years later, she accepted the corporate pastry chef position at Jim Lahey’s Sullivan Street Bakery, managing wholesale production as well as distribution to the group’s restaurants throughout New York. In 2014, Megan and her husband, Patrick, moved to Richmond, Virginia with the goal of opening a restaurant with their friend, Andrew Manning. After three years of highly successful pop-ups, that dream became a reality as the trio opened Longoven in June 2018.  Here, Megan has designed a wildly inventive pastry program that showcases specific flavors in beautifully presented dishes.

She collaborated with Kalup Linzy on the “A Memorial for Taiwan” project at the Whitney.
