Celebrity chef Kevin Rathbun owns some of the hottest restaurants in the country. But before he became a renowned chef, Rathbun worked as a dishwasher at the restaurant Sambo’s in Kansas City. Working his way through restaurants and up the ranks, Rathbun became a Chef at Baby Routh in Dallas, a DiRona award-winning restaurant. His display of culinary expertise at Baby Routh led him to become the chef at Nava, a hip restaurant in Atlanta where Chef Rathbun brought Southwestern cuisine to the Deep South. It didn’t take long for Nava to become a hit both locally and nationally. Next up for Chef Rathbun was opening his own restaurant. In 2004 he opened his namesake restaurant Rathbun’s featuring a wide variety of Modern American cuisine. The restaurant was a huge success and garnered accolades from Esquire Magazine, Travel & Leisure, USA Today, Bon Appetit, and Southern Living, to name a few. Then, after being inspired by a trip to Spain, he decided to open a wine and tapas bar, and with that the Krog Bar was born. Following suite of Rathbun’s, Krog Bar earned awards from every major foodie news source. Chef Rathbun continued his restaurant success when he opened up one of the Top Steakhouses in America, Kevin Rathbun Steak. Only using local produce, organic meats, and heritage bred animals, Kevin Rathbun Steak has been featured on the Today Show, The Early Show, Iron Chef America, and Good Morning America for its delicious eats and widespread popularity.
