Charlie Mitchell, New York's First Black Michelin-Starred Chef, Is Also Just The Second Black Chef To Achieve This Feat In The U.S.
"You just assume that someone has already done this, you know, it doesn't cross your mind that you may be the first or second to do really anything, especially here in New York City."

Chef Charlie Mitchell made history when the MICHELIN Guide honored him with the 2022 MICHELIN Guide New York Young Chef Award.
Mitchell is the executive chef and co-owner of Brooklyn restaurant Clover Hill, an intimate 30-seat fine-dining establishment. The restaurant opened in 2019 and took an unfortunate hit due to the pandemic, which caused the location to stop serving the public until Feb. 2022. However, since reopening, the MICHELIN Guide has given the upscale restaurant a star rating for its unique seasonal menus.
