Houstonian, Justin Yu, is a graduate of Houston University and the Culinary Insitute of America, Hyde Park. Yu returned to Houston upon graduation before heading to the West Coast and Europe to stage and further refine his skills.
Yu's first restaurant, Oxheart, opened in 2012 and was named one of America's Top 10 Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit. It was his work at Oxheart that earned him the 2016 James Beard Award for Best Chef, Southwest.
In 2016 Oxheart closed to make way for Theodore Rex, which achieved similar acclaim. Today Justin Yu is the Chef/Owner/Partner Theodore Rex Restaurant, Better Luck Tomorrow, Public Services Wine and Whisky, and Squable.
Favorite success quote or mantra:
"Head down, eyes up, always be humble."
