The Traveling Chef – Christopher Mangless
Christopher Mangless, a Green Bay native and graduate of Johnson & Wales’ culinary arts program in Denver, aims high at Three Three Five, a private dining studio on North Broadway that serves as the kitchen for The Traveling Chef.
Having searched several years for the right spot, Mangless upped the ante by transforming a century-old Broadway building into a chic dining studio that pairs big-city flair with big-time food for corporate meetings, holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, wine tastings, cooking classes and other private gatherings. “It’s for anyone who would want to rent out a restaurant, except here the place is already yours,” said Mangless, a Green Bay native and graduate of Johnson & Wales’ culinary arts program in Denver. If it seems like Mangless’ dining experiment is shrouded in mystery, that’s exactly how he wants it. You won’t find an elaborate sign out front. Instead, foodies who want to find him will find him. And when they do, they’ll have an abundance of options to explore. “All of our menus are custom to each event. We can really create any kind of food you need, whether it’s just hors d’oeuvres, a simple brunch, or a multi-course tasting dinner,” said Mangless, who cut his teeth at many highly touted restaurants, including Solera in Denver, Norman’s at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, and Graham Elliot in Chicago. “We can do as much or as little as you want us to do. You want us to show up with a cheese plate and wine, that’s fine. You want flowers, linens, a DJ, tents, entertainment, sleigh rides, you name it, we can throw that kind of party, too.” Read the rest of the article
