Cieslak then decided to enroll in the Art Institutes International Minnesota and pursued his Bachelors Degree in Culinary Management, while working at Cafe Lurcat in downtown Minneapolis and, what was formerly, Northcoast American restaurant in the western suburbs.  After graduation Cieslak moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 2009 and started at the original Troquet location for close to four years as sous chef, before moving on to the Columbus Restaurant group where he was Executive sous chef at Ostra, Mistral, and Sorellina, and opening Executive Chef at Bar Lyon.
