Bryant is the Executive Chef of The Local Craft Food and Drink where the menu now truly reflects his journey. With an ever changing menu to keep the inventive Chef from getting bored, “The Local” is a quaint local’s spot in the heart of Coral Gables, FL with a charming cult following. With scratch cooking as this kitchen’s base, Chef Bryant has started rethinking ingredients at a basic level. From making his own to butter and American cheese, to rethinking a katsuobushi technique with mushrooms stems, his mind is always working. The Local Craft Food and Drink was recently added to The Daily Meal’s “America’s 75 Best Fried Chicken Spots.” Chef Phil was nominated by Chef Norman Van Aken to compete in Robb Report Magazine’s Culinary Masters Competition for 2016.
