With over a decade of culinary experience, Todd Mitgang brings his creativity to the innovative seafood-focused menu at Crave Fishbar.
Having trained at the French Culinary Institute, Mitgang started out as Sous Chef and then Executive Chef at the seafood-driven Lisenda (now Ruby Room) in Roslyn, NY. Seeking a greater challenge, Mitgang accepted a position at Soho’s critically acclaimed and consumer-popular Kittichai in 2004, where he was quickly promoted to Sous Chef and then Chef de Cuisine. In June 2010, he returned to his Long Island roots as the opening Executive Chef/Partner of South Edison in Montauk, and following its success, opened Bo’s Kitchen and Bar Room as Executive Chef in Flatiron.
In 2012, Mitgang and Brian Owens, with whom he had opened Crave Ceviche Bar in Midtown in 2007, reunited to open Crave Fishbar in Midtown, where Mitgang is currently the Executive Chef. Owing to its popularity and success, Owens and Mitgang collaborated to open a second outpost of Crave Fishbar on the Upper West Side in December 2015.
