Executive Chef Mitchell Brumels
After nearly three years leading kitchens at Ocean Prime outposts in Denver, Atlanta and Philadelphia and nearly two decades of extensive fine dining experience, Mitchell Brumels joins the Ocean Prime Boston team as Executive Chef. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), he has trained under world-renowned chefs and is active in the pursuit of furthering his mastery of the craft.
Prior to joining Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, Chef Brumels was executive chef for nine years at Vitale’s restaurants in Michigan, which was named “Italian Restaurant of the Year” four times by Dining Out magazine. Prior to Vitale’s, he spent two years as executive chef of the award-winning Italian restaurant Tre Cugini in Grand Rapids, Mich., which received “Restaurant of the Year” awards from On The Town magazine both years that he was running the kitchen.
Brumels entered the restaurant industry as a dishwasher at age 16 and quickly moved up in the kitchen. Always eager to learn, he took a job at a fine dining Italian restaurant to work under a CIA graduate. Seeing Brumels’ merit, the chef later encouraged him to also apply to the CIA. Listening to the chef’s advice, Brumels went to the famed New York culinary school and graduated top 10 in his class in 1999.
A true Michigander at heart, Brumels enjoys ice carving, fly fishing, the outdoors, and food.
General Manager Tyler Maniscalco
A New Jersey native, Tyler Maniscalco first fell in love with the hospitality industry at the age of 19 while working as a bar-back in Tallahassee. He worked his way up to bar manager while simultaneously attending school at Florida State University. After graduating with a degree in economics, Tyler moved to New York to further pursue his passion for hospitality. In 2015, Tyler joined the Ocean Prime family in New York City as a bartender. His dedication and skills did not go unnoticed and he was quickly promoted to a supervisory position as Bar Chef and Beverage Manager. In 2017, Tyler transferred to Ocean Prime in Philadelphia where he oversaw the beverage program as Beverage Manager, then promoted to General Manager. Tyler most recently took his experience, knowledge and positive energy to Boston in August 2020.
In his free time, you can find Tyler exploring the food and restaurant scene and spending time with his dog Winston. His favorite dish on Ocean Prime’s menu is the sushi, and he is particularly fond of the Dynamite Roll.
