Colonia Verde

Chef Felipe Donnelly

Felipe Donnelly is the Executive Chef and owner of James Beard nominated Colonia Verde in Fort Greene, Cosmico Wine Bar, Disco Tacos & Compartí Catering.

The Colombian chef was born in Madrid and spent his childhood living in Bogota, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City – an experience deeply imbued in his culinary style. Having lived across many Latin American countries, the act of experiencing and sharing food was the first step in calling a new place home. By producing bold, homegrown Latin flavors in all his endeavors, Donnelly is able to explore his culinary creativity through the lens of the heart of the Latin kitchen. With inimitable hospitality, dining at one of Donnelly’s restaurants is where a new restaurant quickly becomes home and new friends become family.

Colonia Verde opened its doors in 2014 and has since become a neighborhood staple frequented by visitors from across the globe. Colonia Verde is inspired by the hearth of Latin American fincas, built on the principle that food tastes better when shared, and for the vibrant community of Fort Greene.
