Memphis-born Chef Jonathan Mah has been in the kitchen for most of his life. Before he could drive, he was working the grill in his father's steakhouse and by the time he could vote, he was earning his chops at Koto's and Erling Jensen's, two top-tier fine dining establishments.
In college Chef Mah majored in hotel and restaurant management at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and would go on to work for Chateau Elan Winery and Resort in Georgia. Afterwards, Chef Mah spent some time in the corporate world as general manager of a Chili's in North Georgia.
Last year Chef Mah returned to Memphis to serve as the Executive Sous Chef at Alchemy in Cooper Young. Now, he's back in Mississippi running his own ship and dishing out some of the top burgers in the county.
