Chef Brady Returns to Haven Gastropub as Executive Chef


Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange welcomes Craig Brady as Executive Chef to oversee its noted culinary program. Chef Brady, alongside Founder & CEO Wil Dee will lead the restaurant into its 9th year in business.

“Having previously held a 4-year position as Chef de Cuisine at Haven Gastropub from 2012 to 2016, Chef Brady has history with the restaurant and the Old Towne Orange community,” commented Dee, who was one of the Founding Partners of Haven Gastropub in 2009 and the sole proprietor of the establishment today. “As we approach a decade of serving our community in Orange and beyond, we look to keep things fresh and innovative to provide an unparalleled experience to our guests.”

As Executive Chef, Craig Brady lends years of experience and much passion to create dishes that push the boundaries of what is commonly known as “pub food” at Orange County’s award-winning restaurant, Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange.

Haven Gastropub has gained much attention for serving high quality, freshly prepared food in a high energy environment, maintaining purveyors of local or organic produce, sustainable seafood, and humanely raised meat and poultry as often as possible. Haven also boasts an award-winning selection of beer, wine, spirits, and cocktails to enjoy alongside the food. A constant effort is put into making available beers that are reserved or highly allocated for only the most serious beer-centric restaurants and pubs. Annual releases, brewery collaborations, and just plain hard to find beers find their way into the cold storage space at Haven.
