Affectionately known as “Capon,” Chef Josh Capon began his culinary journey when he was discovered by Charlie Palmer. He honed his skills at Aureole and the Lenox Room before working for David Burke at Park Avenue Cafe and traveling throughout Europe.
After a stint at St. Regis Hotel’s Astor Court as sous chef under Gray Kunz, he took over as Executive Chef at Matthew’s, followed by Alva, and later took on the role of Executive Chef at Canteen in SoHo. He went on to open several successful restaurants, including Lure Fish Bar, Burger & Barrel Winepub, El Toro Blanco and Bowery Meat Company with Mercer Street Hospitality Group.
Capon’s latest venture is the hospitality portfolio VCR Group, which he co-founded with David Rodolitz, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Conor Hanlon in 2021.
