Josh Hebert ’95 speaks to Brophy Econ classes

Josh Hebert ’95 generously gave his time to speak to Ms. Guffey’s Econ classes this month.

Josh talked to Brophy students about how he started his restaurant, the difficulties starting a business, and how he followed his passion for cooking.

Josh’s restaurant is now one of the most highly acclaimed restaurants in the city. His theme of “Improvisational cuisine” gives diners a menu of items that they only check what they WON’T eat then chef surprises them with several small plates made from what was left on their menu.
