Best Chef - 225 Magazine

Ryan André, City Pork (18.6%)
City Pork Deli and Charcuterie’s reign—being voted as 225’s Best BBQ for the past three years—might have had something to do with its corporate chef, Ryan André. A product of the Louisiana Culinary Institute, André perfected his craft at New Orleans institution Commander’s Palace and Baton Rouge’s Le Creole before landing his current role. André spends his days planning City Pork’s unpredictable menu, which blends traditional Cajun cuisine with international influences. chefryanandré.com
