Al Mancini with Comme Ca Las Vegas’ Brian Howard at Pebble Beach Food & Wine
About Brian Howard
Brian Howard at the age of 10 years old was washing dishes and dropping frys in the kitchen of a Detroit Coney island his father worked in as a short order cook. Even at that young age, Brian Howard knew cooking ran through his blood. From then, cooking is all he has ever known. He worked throughout some of Detroit’s finest restaurants including The
Lark, Detroit’s first four diamond four star dining room. In 2000, Brian left Michigan to head west to Las Vegas.
He took a job as a Sous Chef at Tsunami, a pan Asian sushi bar, and started perfecting his skills in cuisines such as Thai, Japanese and Chinese. From there he moved on to be a disciple in such kitchens as Lutece, the historical French Nouveau restaurant Julia Childs once called the best restaurant in the United States, and Andre Rochats Michelin starred Alize.[/private]
