The first thing you should know about Eighty-Sixed is, we are chef owned. Ive been in the industry all my life but have been cooking and cheffing professionally for 20 years. My dad first became a head chef at 18 years old, and naturally like most kids I wanted to be just like my dad….. which we was naturally against. When I got my first job as a dishwasher for him, he and all the other cooks tried to push me out of it. I fell in love with food and moved up very quickly. If you have worked for family or a father in the industry, they come down a whole lot harder on you than others.
