Chef Brian Poe is probably one of the most approachable and friendly culinary experts one will find in the City of Boston. Being the executive Chef at the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill has not tainted his quiet way of going about his daily routine. It may be that laid-back Southern charm of growing up in Georgia that allows him the opportunity to casually walk up to complete strangers enjoying the fruits of his labor, making sure they are having a good experience while visiting this fun establishment on Boylston Street.
It’s been well over five years since Brian first stepped foot in Beantown, having arrived from Scottsdale, Arizona where he honed his skills as a Chef at the Millennium Scottsdale Resort. He has also worked in the kitchen of the prestigious Siro’s in Saritoga Springs, New York. His first encounter with the local arm of the hospitality industry was at Season’s Restaurant, located at the popular Millennium Bostonian Hotel, where he was appointed the Food & Beverage Director.
Currently, Chef Poe oversees the redesigned kitchen at Boston’s well known, Rattlesnake Bar & Grill, located only a few steps away from the beautiful Public Gardens. He has drawn on his many exotic travel experiences, to combine exciting ingredients for his innovative menu that features both North and South American Cuisine, with a hint of the flavors of New England style cooking.
In addition to giving his full attention to “Poe’s Kitchen” at the Rattlesnake, Brian has found time to join the staff of Newbury College as a Culinary Instructor, as well as preparing food as a private Chef for the legendary and celebrated pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, Curt Schilling and his family.
“The Spirited Bostonians” salute Chef Brian Poe for his help and support in planning a wonderful evening that will benefit the “Globe Santa Fund.” He is our “All Star.”
