The Chef

 

Chef James Mignola brings his culinary expertise to WCP with a fun menu that aligns with the venue’s themes of locality, adaptive reuse, and sustainability.

He considers food an art form, and he carefully pairs his creations with WCP’s beer to create well-rounded, delicious meals. In addition, he reuses brewery-spent grain in his breads and recipes, as well as other environmentally conscious tactics, to make sure every resource and ingredient is used to its fullest potential.

Mignola trained under French master Maurice LeDuc at Autre Chose in Cambridge while studying at Harvard University. He continued to hone his craft as sous-chef at the Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York City, and went on to the positions of executive chef at New Jersey’s Tewksbury Inn and executive chef and creative force at Pigalle, a mainstay French brasserie in Manhattan’s Theatre District.
