Mixologist/Sommelier Kyle Martinez
Kyle began his restaurant career as a line cook, and later as sous chef for restaurants in
Westchester and Litchfield Counties, where he was first able to work personally with local
farmers. In a brief absence from the industry, he worked with local organizations such as The
Hickories and Homefront Farmers, where his passion for local, sustainable farming and fresh,
seasonal ingredients only grew Finally, however, he found himself following his true passion,
hospitality here at Bailey’s Backyard.
From there, Kyle has found an avenue to combine his love for beautiful local produce
and outstanding beverages. From tasting menu wine and beer pairings, to creating seasonally
inspired craft cocktails fitting with Bailey’s emphasis on house-created ingredients, he has been
contributing to the beverage program throughout his tenure here. He is also currently pursuing
certification as a sommelier.
When he’s not at Bailey’s, Kyle enjoys taking in the cuisine and culture of the New
England area with his wife, Kelley, and spending time outdoors.
