Classically trained at the California Culinary Academy, Coleman paid his dues and shaped his philosophy and artistic approach to food in San Francisco, New York and Orange County.
He served under some renowned chefs, including Chef Chris Santos at the award winning locations, Suba and Mojo, as well as Chef Daniel Humm at the acclaimed Campton Place Hotel – awarded 4 stars by the San Francisco Chronicle during Coleman’s employment.
As executive chef for Michaels Restaurant Group, each of the 6 locations received critical acclaim, including Zagat naming the flagship location, Michael’s on Naples, top Italian restaurant in Southern California in 2013, and proclaiming the group’s Napoli-style pizza the best in the country that same year.
Coleman brings honesty, humility and integrity to his cooking – always creating, always learning. The Breakers Roadshow is the ideal vehicle for Coleman to reach new audiences, and the chef wants his customers to be part of the journey.
