Executive Chef Eugenio Reyes

Peering through the dishwashing station just weeks after moving to Ohio from Mexico City without knowing a word of English, Eugenio Reyes dreamed of one day being able to prepare meals for restaurant guests. During his time as a dishwasher at Mitchell’s Steakhouse, he never imagined that he would rise through the ranks and one day become executive chef of a fine-dining restaurant in Midtown Manhattan.

After eight months as a dishwasher, Reyes moved to the salad station, then gained his first leadership experience as a kitchen supervisor. He worked his way up to sous chef at Mitchell’s Ocean Club in Columbus, Ohio, and received Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ Sous Chef of the Year award in 2010. He then spent time as executive sous chef at Ocean Prime Dallas and climbed the ranks to become executive chef in Dallas thereafter. After successfully opening Ocean Prime Beverly Hills in 2014, he was named the company’s Executive Chef of the Year.

Chef Reyes credits his nearly two-decade career with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants for helping him discover his passion, and he loves working for a company that truly cares about its associates. Staying true to this philosophy, Reyes has been an integral part of employee development across the country, traveling to Michigan, Indianapolis, Atlanta and Dallas to lead kitchen training.

Although he moved to the United States in 1996, Reyes continues to celebrate his Mexican heritage and enjoys combining traditional Mexican flavors with American twists. Even when he is not in the Ocean Prime kitchen, he enhances his cooking skills by reading cookbooks, experimenting in the kitchen and watching the Food Network.
