Under the mentorship of Gavin Kaysen's team at Spoon and Stable in Minneapolis, Minnesota, he gained invaluable insights into the artistry of fine dining. Subsequently, he lent his skills to the former Michelin Star Restaurant - Café Boulud in New York, where he fine-tuned his ability to create culinary experiences that transcended the ordinary.

Chef Ciarán's culinary philosophy seamlessly weaves together his academic foundation, diverse training, and experiences in fine dining establishments. His culinary creations are a testament to his commitment to excellence, where each dish is a carefully curated masterpiece that allows the purity of the ingredients to take center stage.


Whether he's cultivating ingredients himself or showcasing the bounty of local Hudson Valley producers, Chef Ciarán's culinary alchemy results in dishes that exude elegance and sophistication.

In the kitchen, Ciarán is a maestro orchestrating a symphony of flavors, combining his urban upbringing with the rustic charm of his Irish heritage.
