JOSEPH 'JJ' JOHNSON, Chef

Joseph 'JJ' Johnson first fell in love with the art of cooking when he was young child watching his grandmother “prepare these extravagant meals that she would lay out on the table.” “I would be underneath trying to help her out.” Since then he’s gone to culinary school, worked at the Morgan Stanley executive dining room, helped open up multiple restaurants, and released a cookbook. His one month stint at Chef’s Club was extended another two months because the demand was so high for his menu.
