Chef Rey

Loves all things Detroit! Go Tigers

Rey Chavez grew up in Detroit.  His mother is from Mexico and was a talented cook giving Rey the foundation of his rich culinary knowledge.  He started his restaurant career at 14 learning the culture of that world from the bottom up. He progressed his career later in Tampa, Florida when he was 25 as a Sous Chef working at venues that ranged from a seafood grill, VIP club and even with Tampa Sports Authority at the Buccaneer’s stadium.

Last year they moved to Omaha and he began working for Restaurants Inc. as the Chef at Stokes Old Market.  Rey’s passion continues to be seafood which you will see in a lot of the weekly specials he creates at Stokes.
