Emil Suarez, our Sous Chef brings an international flavor to The Madison. Born in Atlantic City, he moved with his family to Honduras for 5 years before returning to “American’s Playground”. Emil attended Absegami in Galloway township where he played soccer.. From there he went on to pursue his undergraduate degree at Kean University.
It was during this time Emil came to join us at The Madison. Initially hired to be a dishwasher, he quickly distinguished himself as creative and energetic with fine attention to detail. Our Executive Chef liked what he saw and took Emil under his wing, teaching him the nuances of the culinary world. Quickly the passion for the kitchen grew and Emil ascended within the ranks of the kitchen staff. Emil has proven his versatility in virtually every kitchen area of The Madison. His influence is enjoyed in the Towne Tavern where Emil introduced lunch and dinner specials to complement the regular menu items. He had a leadership position with our banquet cooking team, delivering delicious platters to groups with up to 200 attendees. And we are proud of his latest accomplishment, his ascension to Sous Chef at The Madison.
