Kevin Felice- 40NORTH Corporate Chef

A graduate of Johnson & Wales Culinary Program, Kevin Felice also studied economics at Seton Hall. Kevin started his career at the Hilton Short Hills where he worked under the direction of Chef Richard Kennedy. While there he spearheaded the re-opening of their dining room which received some of the highest accolades in New Jersey. In his early career, Kevin was Owner and Executive Chef of The Cargo Cafe in Staten Island, NY. Now, as part of the 40NORTH Restaurant Group for 4 years, Kevin spearheads the creative development of all 40NORTH kitchens and menus. “Flavor should be clean and simple. I enjoy taking familiar flavors and dishes and presenting them in a new and exciting way that surprises my guests. Comfort can be cutting edge if you are innovative in your technique.” Recent accomplishments with 40NORTH include the conception and opening of The Office Tavern Grill, Piattino Neighborhood Bistro and George + Martha’s American Grill.

He was instrumental in leading the culinary team at the Office Tavern Grill in Summit from it’s opening in December of 2016 to the present time. Dan attended Morris County Vo-tech and Johnson and Whales where he honed his skills and developed an unique approach to the modern American menu...wowing guests with his unique and creative food.

Kelly Reilly - General Manager

Kelly is a manager of many talents – a thoughtful leader, an expert coordinator, and a pro bartender. With more than 14 years in hospitality (11 with 40NORTH) Kelly knows how every part of a restaurant should work in harmony. That's why she focuses on building great teams who give guests an exceptional dining experience they'll remember long after they finish dessert. Kelly found her passion for the restaurant business while earning her degree at the University of Delaware. It started with waiting tables and quickly grew into a career that she loves. A New Jersey native, Kelly loves exploring her home state. When she isn't attending a wine course or industry event you'll find her hiking, visiting a beer garden, or relaxing at home with her Maine Coon cats. Kelly, and the entire team in Summit look forward to creating memories for every Guest for years to come!
