Chef Patrick Mulvaney
Patrick Mulvaney is a proud Sacramentan whose cooking career has spanned five time zones and two and a half decades. Moving to the Valley in 1993, he fell in love with the year round growing season and the proximity of the farmers, ranchers, brewers and winemakers. This love continues to fuel both the creative spirits of his team and the appetites of his guests.
His travels have taken him from a European apprenticeship through The River Café in Brooklyn, RoxSand in Phoenix, and to Paragary’s & The Kitchen in Sacramento. He began Culinary Specialists in 2001, opened the B&L in 2005 and expanded to Next Door in late 2007. Patrick loves sharing the bounty of our region, be it through the restaurant, off-site parties or family style meals Next Door.
