Chef David Miller

Classically trained at The Culinary Institute of America and The International School of Confectionery Sugars, Miller started his career as Executive Chef at the Angelus Resort in the West Indies, where he oversaw the Caribbean’s highest rated restaurant, Le Caribe.

Continuing his out-of-the-box success in the Caribbean, Miller worked as Executive Chef for major hospitality companies, including America’s oldest and most prestigious bed and breakfast, The White Hart Inn. He also furthered his career at Dunton Hot Springs, North America’s highest-rated, all-inclusive resort. In the winter of 2005, at the age of 23, he opened Savant Fine Dining and Savant Fine Chocolates in Clearwater, Florida. In just two short years, Savant earned its place in Zagat as one of America’s Top 100 Restaurants, repeating the feat two more years until its closing in 2010. In the wake of Savant’s success in 2008, Miller opened his second restaurant, Cities, and his third, Antilia on Scrub Island, Tortola.
