The Dedicated Staff & Executive Leadership at Olde Bryan Inn

Executive Chef: John Capelli

Chef John began his career at OBI in May, 1990 as a prep cook while finishing his training at Saratoga Vo-Tech, where he was taught by the talented Chef George Hoffis. In short time, John was promoted from prep cook position to cooking on the line, mastering four different positions: salad, sauté, grill cook and expeditor. This experience, combined with his education, soon had him promoted yet again to sous chef. And, from there, John continued to work his way up through the ranks, earning the head chef position, and currently, the demanding and rewarding role of Executive Chef.

John also contributes his time to many of the charitable functions underwritten by the Olde Bryan Inn.
Chef John sums up his Executive Chef experience:
“I truly love my job and continue to learn new things daily with all the good people I work with.”
