Our Featured Chef: Rudy Poindexter’s passion for food began at an early age. While in high school, he developed the incredible skill of ice carving. His love of creating beautiful sculptures from ice transformed into a desire for learning how to prepare world-class cuisine. Upon graduating from high school, Rudy worked at several high-end locations in the Detroit area. Once realizing that he wanted food to be a life-long career, he entered Johnson & Wales University. He has over 10 years of experience as an executive chef in the industry working at notable locations such as Williams Island Country Club Aventura and Cheesecake Factory / Grand Lux Cafe.
