Executive Chef/Partner Jamie Kenyon, native of Manchester, England, began his career at Daniel and Bar Boulud, gaining invaluable experience in classic and nouvelle French cuisine. Passionate to learn about Italian food, he moved onto Manzo, the flagship restaurant of Eataly, then helped launch Gabe Stulman’s Perla (which opened to great acclaim). Subsequently he was brought on as Executive Sous at Lupa in the West Village, where he remained until asked to help in the ground-up creation of La Sirena at the Maritime Hotel —serving there as executive sous chef at the restaurant and executive chef of private dining — garnering a Michelin star during his tenure. Following that success, he was asked to serve as Chef de Cuisine for all six restaurants at Eataly. When being offered him a partnership in BOTTINO, he saw the opportunity there to reinvigorate an established restaurant, and to create his own restaurant home, joining the BOTTINO family in spring 2019.
