Rio Mar announces that Miles Prescott is their new Executive Chef. Back in July, Brett Anderson revealed that Chef Adolfo Garcia was peacing out of his flagship Latin/seafood restaurant in the Warehouse District by selling his shares to business partner Nick Bazan III. Around that same time Miles Prescott was announced as chef du Cuisine, a position he’d held several years back under Garcia, and has been holding down again since July. In fact, he’s basically been running the kitchen over there, so it’s no surprise he’s finally Executive Chef.
Prescott attended The New England Culinary Institute in Vermont and has worked in professional kitchens since 1993. He’s also worked under Susan Spicer and Chris DeBarr, and had a successful run in the kitchen at The Country Club in the Bywater a few years back.
