Chef Brian Duffy studied the French method at The Restaurant School in Philadelphia, then worked under world-renowned Chef Jean Marie LaCroix at The Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. From there, Chef Duffy partnered in opening Kristopher’s, a BYOB restaurant whose unassuming style and inventive dishes were met with widespread critical acclaim.

Duffy was among the first chefs in America to elevate modest pub food to epicurean status when he reinvented and revitalized classic Irish pub fare as Corporate Executive Chef of Kildare's Irish Pub. Calling his cuisine “New Celtic,” Chef Duffy developed eclectic twists on traditional favorites that would stimulate the palate while appealing to the soul. Following his tenure at Kildare's, Chef Duffy joined forces with Seafood America as a consultant and Executive Chef.

Chef Duffy also has carved out a second profession as a sought-after television personality. Making his debut on Food Network's "Date Plate," Duffy went on to appear on DIY Network, HGTV, NBC, Spike TV and Fine Living Network. Chef Duffy has been featured annually on "The Today Show" for the St. Patrick's Day Irish cook-off and makes monthly appearances on NBC Philadelphia's "The 10! Show." The chef also is the Culinary Spokesperson for the GE Profile Series and Residence Inn by Marriott. 

Today, Chef Duffy works privately as a full-time consultant, helping restaurants stand out and be profitable in a crowded market. He (and his motorcycle) can be seen on Spike TV's "Bar Rescue," where as Chef Expert, he tours the country, reforming flailing businesses with his down-to-earth yet no-nonsense approach and "tell it like it is" style. But despite his success, Chef Duffy is just as excited about cooking today as he was when he first started out.

By: Brian Duffy

Some bars' kitchens seem to have disconnected from the rest of the hospitality industry. Instead of fresh, signature dishes, the modern age is focusing on pre-packaged, pre-cooked and pre-portioned foods. How did this happen?

When should you change your menu? A food menu provides revenue for your business; it has worked for you for years. By refreshing your menu, you are telling your guests that you want them to keep coming back!

Is This the Service Industry?   March 28, 2012
By: Brian Duffy

I have heard "no" far too many times. This way of thinking actually makes me mad! We are in the service industry; it is our job to serve our guests, our duty to make our guests “raving fans” and our livelihood to provide a service to our guests.
