Hungry Pigeon is the dream project of chefs Scott Schroeder and Pat O’Malley. They met as line cooks 13 years ago at ¡Pasion! restaurant, and they haven’t matured a bit despite their combined thirty-five plus years in the restaurant industry. They also have friendship, resourcefulness, and, fortunately, complimentary skills. The two of them plan the Hungry Pigeon’s menus daily. Their girlfriends designed the space, but O’Malley and Schroeder take credit for it every time.
