A native of Davidsonville, Maryland, Mills graduated from The French Culinary Institute in 2007. After graduation Mills began working in various kitchens including Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Soon after he joined Four Seasons, Mills began working for the Mina Group at Four Seasons Hotel Georgetown and has enjoyed working with the prestigious hospitality group, under the direction of Michael Mina, for more than five years. In April of 2012, Mills took the position of executive sous chef for the Mina Group, overseeing the region’s culinary operations, including the openings of PABU in Baltimore, The Handle Bar in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and most recently Pub 1842 in Las Vegas.
At Wit & Wisdom, Mills has played an instrumental part in the restaurant’s recently revamped menu, which offers a progressive twist on traditional tavern food. As executive chef, Mills will be responsible for overseeing staff as they carry out the breakfast, lunch and dinner services at Wit & Wisdom, as well as Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore’s 24-hour room service. Following a recent update of the menu, Mills plans to keep the momentum going at the restaurant by bringing fresh ideas and new flavors to the table at Wit & Wisdom. Having been lucky to develop his talents under the direction of Michael Mina, Mills plans to foster a similar environment in the kitchen of Wit & Wisdom that allows staff to maximize their creativity and reach their full potential.
Having watched Maryland’s food scene grow during his years in the industry, Mills has a deep understanding of the region’s cuisine and a great respect for what Baltimore’s chefs are doing and the level of passion they exude. With his close ties to the community, Mills maintains strong relationships with the area’s top farms and looks to continue to grow the restaurant’s relationships with additional local purveyors.
