Ryan has built his skills in some of the country’s most lauded restaurants including the Michelin one-star restaurant Caviar Russe, Wylie Dufresne’s landmark for modernist cooking WD-50, as well as Dovetail NYC and minibar by Jose Andres. Ryan also helmed the kitchen of the renowned DC hot spot Ripple where he was awarded Rising Culinary Star of 2017 by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW).
