Rising Star Chef Jaime Young of Sunday Hospitality - Biography

Brooklyn, NY

September 2019

A Long Island native, Jaime Young jump-started his career with a degree in culinary nutrition from Johnson & Wales University. Fresh out of school he was thrust into the world of fine dining at Daniel Humm’s Eleven Madison Park. After a year working his way through the kitchen, and a few stops at Grayz and Ten Downing, he relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to work for Tony Maws at Craigie on Main. 

Young returned to New York in 2013 to join the kitchen at Atera, cooking with another mentor, 2013 StarChefs Rising Star Matthew Lightner, and working his way up to chef de cuisine. After years in fine dining, Young wanted a change. In 2016, he teamed with EMM and Major Food Group alums Todd Enany and Adam Landsman to open Sunday in Brooklyn. The all-day restaurant boasts an open kitchen, stellar bar program by Brian Evans, a coffee counter, wood-burning oven, and market, engaging a new paradigm for the casual eatery, and reconceiving the possibilities of laid back, chef-driven cooking. Young and his partners are continuing to grow their restaurant group, Sunday Hospitality, most recently with the opening of bento-by-day, izakaya-by-night spot in the multidimensional A/D/O co-working and event space in Greenpoint called Rule of Thirds. Young is an alum of the  2017 class of StarChefs New York Rising Stars.
