Hotel EMC2 is pleased to welcome Chef Brandon Brumback as Executive Chef. Originally from Kansas City, Chef Brumback began his career at 16 years old, while attending his school district’s vocational school, as a student in culinary and hospitality management. Brumback furthered his education by moving to Denver to attend Johnson & Wales University.
After culinary school Brumback moved to The United Kingdom to work at the Fat Duck, ranked the world’s best restaurant, at the time. There, he got his first taste of the Michelin starred restaurant experience.
Brumback has since been lucky enough to work in the elite kitchens of Napa Valley’s Bouchon and The French Laundry, as well as Chicago’s Blackbird, Ria and Grace.
Over the past several years, Brumback has been an influential part of the two Michelin starred Acadia, the opening of Danny Meyer’s Greenriver for the prestigious Union Square Hospitality Group, and most recently, the opening of Chef Grant Achatz’s newest casual concept, Roister.
Chef Brumback is a resident in Chicago's West Loop.
