Untitled Supper Club
Growing up in a large family in East Central Wisconsin, Ryan found his true passion
working at a country club at the age of 15. It was there that he experienced the sights,
smells and excitement of a professional kitchen. While completing a BA in Advertising and
Public relations at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, Ryan continued to gain
knowledge in all areas of hospitality management. From planning and organizing
large-scale events, developing new recipes, and opening new restaurants, Ryan has
worked all facets of the restaurant industry.
After completing his education, Ryan was hired as Sous Chef for the celebrated Bartolotta
Restaurant Group at just 22 years old. While working at several of their restaurants and
opening Pier Wisconsin his interest for food and service blossomed while being mentored
by some of the top chefs in the region. That experience ultimately led to a career with
Levy Restaurants to open the Harley-Davidson Museum campus including Motor
Restaurant and event space for up to 10,000 guests. His creativity and experience with
building a brand was a perfect match for creating unique menu items for hungry riders.
After supporting events such as The Kentucky Derby, NCAA Championships, and NASCAR
Ryan’s success with Levy ultimately led him to their Chicago properties. As Executive Chef
at Untitled, he spices up classic American fare with innovative flavor combinations that
pair perfectly with Untitled’s 500+ selections of American whiskey. Ryan molds his
cooking style through inspirations from cultural experiences. He enjoys brushing up on
history, Americana and pop culture and experiments with how it plays into the regional
cooking styles that define “American” food.
