Chef Joey Hart Metropolitan Rooftop tavern


Executive Chef at Metropolitan Tavern

Executive Chef, Joey Hart, of Metropolitan Tavern has worked in the culinary industry for 17 years. His passion for cooking began at 5 years old, helping his grandmother work in the kitchen. Having grown up on a farm during the Great Depression, Hart’s grandmother, Billie Sue, did everything by hand and passed that knowledge on to her grandson.

Following an accident in the oil fields of Texas in 2005, Chef Hart decided it was time for a career change and immersed himself in the culinary arts. His efforts have been recognized by the Huffington Post and Hart has been the recipient of both the People’s Choice and Judges awards in the Bourbon & Bacon Fest in 2015 and 2016.

When he is not creating gastronomic magic in the kitchen, Joey can be found spending time with his partner and children in the outdoors, producing music, or practicing regenerative agriculture at home.
