 Ocean Prime Philadelphia Executive Chef Maeve Joyce

Executive Chef
Maeve Joyce

Chef Maeve Joyce’s interest in the restaurant and hospitality world sparked when she was 14 years old. She quickly fell in love with exploring and understanding unique flavors and cuisines while working at both a Thai restaurant and Italian restaurant in high school. After several years of serving, hosting, and working on the line specializing in pasta, Chef Maeve moved to Philadelphia where she attended LaSalle University and completed her degree in Social Work while also working in the school’s catering department, furthering her culinary interest. After graduation, she pursued a career in direct care for adults with intellectual disabilities but later decided that her immense passion for food was something that she missed. In 2016, Chef Maeve returned to the culinary world full time, where her passion for helping others could be combined with her love of food.

Chef Maeve started her career with Ocean Prime in 2017. She began as a line cook working her way up through the ranks to Executive Chef of Ocean Prime Philadelphia. She takes pride in teaching and developing others in the restaurant industry and greatly appreciates how food can bring diverse groups together. Chef Maeve has learned many lessons during her career, but believes the greatest lesson is time spent investing in other people’s growth is never wasted. 

Outside of the kitchen, Maeve enjoys spending time with her family, including her Havanese and cat at home! She also enjoys dining out, traveling to the Caribbean and visiting Ireland to see her family.

 

Jerome Jones, General Manager of Ocean Prime Philadelphia

General Manager
Jerome Jones

Originally from Bay Area, California, General Manager Jerome Jones is a day one associate at Ocean Prime Philadelphia. Jerome’s career in hospitality wasn’t always planned, he just fell into it starting as a busser, and since has held every Front of House position and even a few positions in the kitchen.

Having a long list of previous jobs, Jerome has been with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants since 2013. Jerome has credited the associate focused culture CMR has as the reason he loves working in the company and believes that if you take care of your associates and keep them happy, that energy will essentially transfer to guests.

Jerome’s advice to anyone looking at a career in hospitality is to always remember we are ladies and gentlemen taking care of ladies and gentlemen. Jerome has learned many lessons during his professional career, but the lesson that stands out the most is to listen more than he speaks and to never change who he is because that is what got him to where he is today. When not at the restaurant, you can find Jerome travelling, dining out, or exploring his interest in music management.

Nick Outlaw, Sales and Event Manager for Ocean Prime Philadelphia

Sales & Events Manager
Nick Outlaw

A Philadelphia native, Nick Outlaw has worked in the restaurant industry since 2007, working at several fine dining restaurants. Nick first began working at Ocean Prime Philadelphia in 2015, where he was a server & trainer and returned to Ocean Prime in January of 2020 and was promoted to Sales & Events Manager in 2021. When asked his favorite part about CMR, Nick said “The culture is unmatched! We not only take great care of our guests, but each other”.

With a background in customer service and retail, hospitality was a natural fit for Nick, who has always had a lifelong love for great food and hosting gatherings. Nick has always thought of serving as hosting one large dinner party every day! Nick’s greatest lesson learned during his professional career has been to take a breath. “The very moment when you think that your current situation is all consuming, remember that it’s not what happens to you, but how you deal with it that determines what you’re really made of. Take a moment. Breathe. Then get back to business!”

Outside of the restaurant, you can find Nick exploring his passions of fashion and interior design. Nick attended Johnson & Wales University in Miami, FL where he studied Culinary Arts and Marketing. Nick currently resides in Collingswood, NJ.
