Matt Joyce, Executive Chef for PRIME at the Plaza, joined the Prime Business Dining team in 2014 and was recently promoted from Sous Chef in early 2015. He began his career in Hospitality at the Beverwyck (Northeast Health-Sodexho) while attending the University at Albany. He quickly found a passion for the craft and the hard work rewarding. After pursuing his culinary degree from Schenectady County Community College in 2002, Matt has held chef positions at Scrimshaw at the Desmond, Normanside Country Club, and Hidden Café. Having experience in all facets of the food service industry: health care, hotel, private club, and independently owned, Matt has developed a strong guest service objective "treat everyone like they are your mother". When not in the kitchen, Matt is especially grateful to have 8 nieces and nephews who provide constant entertainment and are always up for a game of kickball. When not with his family, Matt is shadowed by his canine companion, Ted!
