Executive Chef, Kevin Mitchell

Chef Kevin Mitchell is a New England native who grew up in Rhode Island before attending the Academy of Culinary Arts in Lakeland, Florida. 

Chef Kevin traveled around South Florida throughout the beginning years of his career and spent this time working hard and learning the culinary industry.  When he was 20 years old he “accidentally” became Head Chef at Italian eatery No Anchovies.  He spent three and a half years with the restaurant before moving on to open Legal Sea Foods in West Palm Beach.  For 12 years Chef Kevin traveled to Legal Sea Foods locations in New York, Florida, and Washington D.C., and eventually was appointed as Executive Chef for the group in D.C.  Chef Kevin left Legal Sea Foods to further his career and continue improving his craft and joined the Briar Group family in late 2016.

Chef has hit the ground running, and is excited to add his personal touch as the Executive Chef at Anthem Kitchen + Bar.  Outside of work, Chef Mitchell enjoys sports, movies, and working on his house.  Most of his time is devoted to spending with his seven-year-old daughter, Haley.
