Our Chef

Chef Colin Clark’s culinary career began at an early age, working summers at the Jersey Shore as a dishwasher and line cook. After high school, Colin worked as a line cook at Smith & Wollensky on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. He then joined STARR Restaurants at the critically acclaimed French Bistro Parc, where he developed a deep appreciation for classic French technique.

During the next spent three years, Colin worked for James Beard award-winning Chef Mark Vetri. It was Vetri, along with his co-chef and partner Brad Spence, who instilled in Colin a lifelong affinity for the traditional Italian culinary art and technique of making pasta, bread, and charcuterie.

In 2013, Colin rejoined STARR to open Le Diplomate in Washington, D.C., where he met his greatest culinary influence Brinn Sinnott. When Brinn left Le Diplomate two years later to assume the helm at Fiola Mare, Colin quickly joined him, ultimately rising to the position of Chef de Cuisine.
