Brian’s culinary style draws inspiration from his Irish heritage, his Canadian training and embrace of the culinary arts. 

Born in Ireland, Brian started his culinary career in Kitchener at the Strand Bistro under master sushi chef Charlie Park before moving on to the Charcoal Steakhouse as Jr. Sous Chef, followed by senior chef roles with Sheraton Hotels, Rebel Creek Golf Course and Salute Uptown Waterloo. From 2007-2017, Brian was executive chef at both Wildcraft and The Bauer Kitchen. Along the way he did stages in his native Dublin at The Greenhouse and The Chophouse, as well as Danny Meyer’s Gramercy Tavern and Marta in New York.

He approaches his professional and culinary life with candour, humour and – most importantly – the same spirit of adventure that was the original impetus for his success. Along the way, Brian has won many culinary awards and is a big supporter of local food, its farmers and markets.
