Chef / Owner
Meadow Neighborhood Eatery + Bar
His childhood was spent living all over the South before his family moved to La Vernia, TX a place he still considers home. PJ’s love for food started at an early age helping his Mom and Grandmom cook on holidays. While spending his weekends at National barbecue competitions with his dad.
PJ spent the first decade of his career working at some of San Antonio’s best restaurants including a 4 year stint as Chef de Cuisine at Chef Jason Dady’s Bin 555.
In 2012 he and his wife Lindsey decided to move to Charleston, South Carolina where PJ took a job as Chef de Partie at the acclaimed McCrady’s Restaurant under Chef Sean Brock. His time at McCrady’s further developed his dedication to local products and seasonality.
After two years in Charleston, he accepted a Sous Chef position with the Contigo Restaurant group in Austin, TX under Chef Andrew Wiseheart. He later went on to become Chef de Cuisine for two of the group’s restaurants before taking over the role of Culinary Director.
San Antonio has always been the place he wanted open his restaurant. PJ is excited about coming home to share his love of food and passion with San Antonio again.
