Miami, FL

January 2016

Wandering into the culinary industry "just to get out of the house" at a young age, Chef Phil Bryant cut his teeth at numerous restaurants, namely with his brother, before he finally got serious about cooking. He'd been exposed to books and years of following in his brother's footsteps, and finally landed in the kitchen with Norman Van Aken. It was working with Norman that propelled the creative drive in him and pushed him further into the industry, eventually to the helm of The Local Craft Food & Drink in Coral Gables.
