Sure there's queue boeuf (oxtail), barbecue ribs and fried chicken, but the main draw at Chef Creole is spiced up seafood - big time - you can't miss the mural on the wall of the small fisherman reeling in a huge blue marlin.

Born in the Bahamas to Haitian parents, Ken and brother, the late Jude Pierre, opened their first Chef Creole restaurant on 77 St and NE 2nd Ave. 27 years ago this December. To date, he has established six more locations, including the Miami International Airport that opened in August. His 7th addition will be the Hardrock Café concession in Hollywood.

These are benchmarks to his success and the popularity of his food. Chef is consistently improving his service levels and social media exposure. Community service, youth projects and supportive efforts to the surrounding neighborhoods of each of his locations are his standard. He has a collection of honored recognitions from all sectors. Most recently Miami Dade Community College and Miami Dade County Schools honored him as an outstanding supporter of education for his commitment to youth as he urges them to achieve excellence in their lives. Miami Dade Commissioners presented a proclamation to him at the opening of the airport location. In Orlando, The Haitian Leaders of America honored him as the Outstanding Haitian Business Leader of the year. His success began with humble roots and he remains true to those roots by giving back. Musicians, celebrities, locals all eat together in his tiki huts enjoying quality food at great prices!

Distribution is underway for his two distinct private sauce recipes, Pikliz and Epis, making them available to people who stop at Chef Creole as part of their travels.

Chef has been featured in cooking shows including Anthony Bourdain, The Travel Channel, Huang’s World and more. There are numerous features in print, and he is the Celebrity Chef at frequent events. During the government shutdown he fed TSA workers at the airport for free until the shutdowns’ end which was covered on national news. His catering clientele include Vivica Fox, The Obamas, Dwayne Wade, Jay Z, Chris Tucker, Wyclef Jean, Rick Ross, Pit Bull and others.
