OWNER PJ NEUMANN
Following his dreams launched in the kitchen of his childhood home, PJ Neumann explored his adventure for taste at a young age, cooking with his mother. PJ cut his teeth in the service industry at fourteen. Sparked by opportunity in the back of house washing dishes, PJ served with diligence, carrying him through the hierarchy of roles, leading to management. Furthering his education at Xavier University, he studied finances, giving him a uniquely original perspective on analytics in the restaurant and bar industry. But PJ stayed tethered to the energy of the industry and used his passion for flavor and service to start his own food truck. Experimenting with comfort and creativity, PJ searched for a way of re-working his beloved industry without sacrificing opportunities to give guests gold through product and service. An at home cook with ambition and approachability met a dream of the perfect biscuit recipe. Grabbing an idea and an apron and snacking over the knowledge of Chef Christian Gill’s culinary experience, PJ became the proprietor of Boomtown Biscuits and Whiskey Bar. Like a warm, silky biscuit pairing perfectly with a dignified whiskey, the duo colonized Boomtown where PJ prospects a golden/prosperous future.
CHEF CHRISTIAN GILL
Christian Gill debuted his journey of becoming Boomtown Biscuit’s Executive Chef at seven years old in Lexington, Kentucky. Dawning in his grandmother’s kitchen, the quest to create was fostered by the teachings of his mother, grandmother, and later on perfected through experience: trial by knife. Executing his knowledge and passion for flavor, Christian welcomed ranging culinary opportunities, from corporate chains to local catering, even leading him to Walt Disney World in Orlando. A chef cut from the cloth of experience, Christian’s journey lead him to Cincinnati, Ohio for his first-time Executive Chef role at the Cincinnati Art Museum and curator of Rhinegeist Brewery’s Chef recipes. Acquired by the taste of a perfect biscuit and the courage to do things differently, Chef Christian Gill forges forward with Boomtown Biscuits and Whiskey proprietor, PJ Neumann, to elevate the essence of comfort food and deliver culinary gold.
