Executive Chef


Irish born and trained, executive Chef Damien “Damo” Moloney of The Kerryman Bar & Restaurant came to the US from Co. Limerick with a desire to share his love of the Irish cuisine. Finding inspiration in the tradition and simplicity of Irish cooking, he stays true to his homeland by working with authentic Irish ingredients.
