I love the diversity of foods and that is why I strive to introduce not just local ingredients but food from around the world to my guests.

We were extremely excited when we had the opportunity to welcome Chef Christian to our family.

His training and experience in a wide range of cuisine including French, New American, Asian, and Italian makes Chef Christian the perfect fit a Downtown Main as we strive to always improve our menu and introduce our guests to new and exciting flavors and presentations.
OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
"I love to experiment with new cocktails and recipes and keeping up with the current trends in martinis and spirits is both challenging and rewarding. However, being able to witness the happiness and enjoyment on the faces of the guests with whom I have established a relationship over the years is my favorite part of the job." ~ Shane Maloney
Shane Maloney originally joined Downtown Main in 2009 after working at other local downtown Brighton establishments and solidifying himself as a premier mixoligist in the area. Shane's talents in bartending and knowledge of spirits are second to none a d he has contributed to many of the martinis on the Downtown Main martini menu (most notably... Shane's Hot & Dirty). Shane was promoted to manager at Downtown Main in 2011 and helped to establish us as a premier destination in Livingston County. Subsequent to that, Shane left for a short time to hone his skill further and we were thrilled to welcome him back to Downtown Main in 2015. Shane is a father of three boys, Liam (18), Teagan (16), and Kallen (13) and currently resides in Farmington Hills.
"After more than a decade in the restaurant industry, I still find it challenging and rewarding. Seeing my guests enjoying themselves and knowing that I was a part of that is still a thrill. I believe that guest satisfaction is the most important part of this job and I strive to make each and every guest feel that we went above and beyond to ensure their experience was without equal." ~ Jen Pellegrini
Jen Pellegrini has more than ten years experience in the restaurant industry in both Michigan and Florida. We were fortunate to have Jen join Downtown Main in 2013 where her talents, work ethic, and professionalism were immediately evident. Jen was named our lead server soon after her arrival and since that time she has solidified herself as a leader at Downtown Main. Jen has organized and run our extremely popular wine tastings and has been the lead server on nearly all private parties for the past two years.
