Foodie Chap With Chef Adrian Mullen of Loft Bar & Bistro

- Liam Mayclem, the KCBS Foodie Chap

KCBS radio “Foodie Chap” and KPIX 5 television “Eye On The Bay” host Liam Mayclem introduces us to the culinary stars behind the food and wine loved by so many in the Bay Area.


Adrian Mullen, Executive Chef & General Manager at Loft Bar & Bistro. He grew up on the East Coast, but ventured west for college.

His professional start in the culinary world began in 1992 after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena.

After many years inside the kitchen and front of house in all manner of San Francisco restaurants he headed further south.

San Jose was calling and in 2005 he opened up LOFT BAR & BISTRO.

Outside the kitchen Adrian likes to entertain and play golf.

“Cooking to me is sharing with family and friends and our customers”
– Executive Chef Adrian Mullen

The menu at LOFT is all about affordable comfort food in a casual environment. It is a place for an intimate dinner for two, a family gathering or a big group or party.

LOFT B&B is among 27 restaurants participating in “Dine Downtown San Jose.” Their $30 pre-fixe menu offers a good sample of the offerings diners can enjoy here.

Enjoy our tasty talk and the mouth-watering Grilled Shrimp recipe to try at home.
