After graduating from Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island, Lishchynsky found his way to NYC where he started his career at David Burke’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Townhouse. He then moved to Boston where he served in several executive chef roles across the city’s fine dining scene, including French bistro 49 Social, which earned a five-star review from Time Out Boston under his leadership. Heading west, Lishchynsky followed his love for the outdoors and planted roots in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. At the Four Seasons Resort and Residences, he spent four years as Executive Chef of Michael Mina’s The Handle Bar restaurant, crafting a menu of modern and elevated pub fare.
Continuing his tenure with the Mina Group, Lishchynsky moved to Music City in summer of 2018 to join Nashville’s Bourbon Steak as Executive Chef. Opened in the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Nashville, Bourbon Steak features a sophisticated take on American steakhouse classics made with the finest cuts of organic and hormone-free beef, pork, and lamb. Lishynsky works with local and regional purveyors to highlight the best product of Middle Tennessee on the seasonal, regionally focused menu.
In his leisure time you can find Lishchynsky fishing, perusing the local farmer’s market or studying cuisine through travel. He shares his love of food with his wife, Claudia, who he met while she was working as his prep cook in Boston. He courted his future wife by making her ceviche and arepas, her favorite dishes from her home country, Colombia. Together they have an English Bulldog, Pablo.
