Mike joined the Doherty team in 2017 as an MIT in our Shannon Rose pub located in Ramsey, NJ.
In 1998 Mike earned his Associate of Applied Science and Culinary Arts Certificate at Johnson & Wales University. Upon his graduation, he quickly gained experience on different kitchen lines from casual to fine dining. His hard work paid off in 2002 when he was promoted to Sous Chef at Nick’s on Broadway, Providence, RI. Over the next several years Mike honed his culinary and leadership skills ultimately earning him the position of Executive Chef at Genesis Healthcare in Morris Hills, NJ. There he was responsible for all back of the house operations and worked meticulously with his team to serve a high-risk population with very specific dietary needs. Gaining knowledge of team building, staff training and overall business planning and execution Mike found his niche. He decided to make a change and re-join the full-service restaurant scene in 2017.
Joining The Shannon Rose Ramsey Mike quickly excelled and demonstrated his talents for building strong guest and staff relationships, maintaining high-quality standards and running a sound back of the house operation. He contributed to several food shows and menu updates through the development of his own items as well as contributing to the group dynamic. This summer Mike has joined the team at The Shannon Rose in Clifton to lead the kitchen as their KM.
Please join us in congratulating Mike on his promotion as we look forward to his continued success.
