Meet the Chef: Brian Millman

Chef Brian Millman of Atwood

< Back to Atwood

Raised in the Chicago suburb of Northbrook, Chef Millman followed his hunger for culinary knowledge all the way to Switzerland's prestigious Les Roches International School of Hotel Management summer program and back to his roots in Chicago, where he earned a degree in Culinary Art from Kendall College. As executive chef at Chicago's Uncommon Ground, distinguished as one of the “greenest restaurants in the world,” Brian forged close relationships with local farmers and discovered a passion for working with local ingredients. Those relationships grew stronger during Brian's tenure at the award-winning Sable Kitchen & Bar and now, to our good fortune, at Atwood. When he's not in the kitchen, Brian can be found gardening, traveling overseas and rooting on the Blackhawks.
