Who is the chef at Roosevelt Prime Steakhouse and what is his background?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Chef Nick Jin is Shanghainese and has been at Roosevelt Prime Steakhouse for five years. Before joining Roosevelt, chef Jin worked at the Holiday Inn, a now-defunct bistro in the Xintiandi shopping complex, and a handful of local restaurants. Jin graduated from local hospitality school Zhongshi Vocational School and has always liked cooking Western food — he started off with Italian dishes 10 years ago and has been whipping up phenomenal steaks ever since. Roosevelt Prime Steakhouse is very much a traditional American steakhouse, so it’s even more impressive that chef Jin and his Chinese team turn out such perfect renditions of American classics. Tuck into a tender, crispy-edged New York strip sirloin, a ramekin of bacon creamed spinach or a bowl of creamy, rich black truffle macaroni and cheese, and you’ll have a hard time believing a local Chinese chef is behind all three.
