Hawthorne & Wood | Chapel hill, NC

Brandon has more than 15 years of fine dining experience. Most recently, he served as vice president of culinary for Solage Hotels and Resorts in Calistoga, CA. It was at Solage Calistoga where he received his first Michelin Star and, under his guidance and creative leadership, Solbar went on to receive seven consecutive Michelin Stars throughout his tenure.

Prior to that, Brandon worked alongside some of the nation’s most innovative and talented culinary minds, including Thomas Keller, John Besh and Gary Danko.

Born and raised in Greensboro, Brandon grew up with an innate sense of hospitality through his family’s culture and restaurant experience. He is a graduate of UNC and attended The Culinary Institute of America. When Brandon isn’t helming the kitchen, this two-time Ironman competitor is training for his next race or spending time with his three children and wife at home.
