Fresh Beginnings

In 2017, The Waterview entered a new and exciting chapter of its culinary history.

Executive Chef Tim Brady
The Waterview is in Chef Brady's blood. Hired before the building's construction was completed in 2004, Tim trained under visionary Executive Chef and CIA graduate, Chef Anthony (Nino) Martino. Together, they built The Waterview's reputation from the ground up, distinguished from its peers by a traditional Escoffier brigade system, a menu to rival New York City venues, and a commitment to the continuous pursuit of culinary excellence. After thirteen years as Sous Chef, Tim became Waterview's Executive Chef in 2017, and is excited to bring his creative vision to a new generation of Waterview guests. Prior to joining The Waterview, Chef Tim polished his talents in a variety of Fairfield County restaurants, and is passionate about bringing world-class, restaurant-style cuisine to our private event menus.

Pastry Chef Brooke DeRosa, CWPC
Chef DeRosa is also a longtime member of The Waterview’s culinary department. After leading the Pastry department through several successful seasons, she paused her career to raise her young family. During this time, Brooke continued to hone her skills as a Chef Instructor at the Lincoln Culinary Institute. In 2015, Chef DeRosa rejoined The Waterview as Pastry Chef, and leads a team of Decorateurs (cake decorators) and Boulangers (bakers) who make the hundreds of wedding cakes and thousands of intricate pastries served annually from scratch. Brooke recently became a Certified Working Pastry Chef (CWPC) by the American Culinary Federation (ACF).
