Chef de Cuisine of Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina at Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Timothy Elmore, is known for his passion and creativity in the kitchen. A 2005 graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Miami, Elmore has more than 10 years of restaurant experience and strives for perfection in every dish he prepares.
Elmore was born and raised in Jamaica where his family has owned and operated a hotel and restaurant for the last fifty years. Elmore moved to Miami and began working at Joy Wallace Catering at the age of 16, where his interest and passion for cooking inspired him to attend culinary school. Right after graduation in 2005, Elmore started to climb the ranks from Dhef de Partie at Gaylord Palms in Orlando, FL and lead line cook at Normans at The Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes to Sous Chef at Lucy Restaurant in Greenwood Village, CO and Sol y Mar Restaurant in downtown Miami.
Elmore eventually landed at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak at Turnberry Isle Resort, Aventura, FL in February 2010 where he began as a line cook and worked his way to Executive Sous Chef within his first year. His hard work and dedication to detail has paid off and led him to his current position as Chef de Cuisine of Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina, where he will oversee the new restaurant’s menu of made from scratch, farm-fresh, multi-ingredient pizzas and burgers.
