Ron has always loved cooking and was holding elaborate dinner parties before he went to culinary school in 2011. During his free time, Ron likes to entertain with multi-course dinners, Friendsgiving, oyster parties, dumpling nights, and rooftop parties.
Before moving to NYC in 2011, Ron has lived in Beijing, Toronto, Hong Kong, Plano, and Austin. Ron has traveled extensively so he has had exposure to many countries and their cuisines. Ron’s most recent trip was to the Middle East, in Dubai, and Northern Africa, Morocco.
Ron’s personal cooking style can be described as contemporary New American with strong influences of Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish ingredients. Ultimately, Ron values the ingredient for itself. Ron often goes to farmer’s markets to see what he can incorporate into his menus, both professionally and privately.
You can currently find Ron as a sous chef at Legacy Records, a contemporary Northern Italian restaurant in Hudson Yards, 515 W. 38th St. New York, NY 10018. Legacy Records is the third restaurant from chef/owner Ryan Hardy of Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones.
