Brian Fry - Corporate Culinary Manager
Brian is originally from Manchester, NH and has been living in Central Florida for over 30 years. He joined Talk of the Town Restaurant Group in 2002 as part of the kitchen opening team for their newest concept MoonFish. Brian worked closely with Corporate Chef Dan Drayer and the culinary team at MoonFish and was a quick study which prompted his promotion to Executive Chef in 2005. During his tenure, MoonFish received the Award of Excellence from the American Culinary Federation and the prestigious DiRoNa Award. Under the direction of Senior Operating Partner Seth Miller, Brian excelled in his position and in 2011 began working in other Talk of the Town concepts. His duties involved many offsite caterings, including Star Chefs Event, Tiger Town, a catering event for the Detriot Tigers Spring Training Camp and Orlando Special Olympics Kick-off event.
One of Brian’s most memorable moments was being part of the culinary team when Talk of the Town was featured at the world famous James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The historic James Beard House is a “performance space” for visiting chefs from across the country. In May of 2014 Brian was promoted to Corporate Culinary Manager, which enables him to mentor “up and coming” chefs in the Talk of the Town family. Brian enjoys cooking at home and watching New England Patriots games, especially when he is surrounded by his family.
