General Manager, El Gaucho Bellevue

Kevin brings a wealth of hospitality expertise to Fire & Vine Hospitality, and he joined El Gaucho Bellevue because of the organization’s commitment to quality and service and building great teams of people. Kevin recently relocated to Seattle after a decade in Los Angeles working for LGO Hospitality. He held a variety of positions over the years including Beverage Director, General Manager, and Regional Manager and he opened several new restaurants in LA and Phoenix, including the highly successful restaurant and bar, The Misfit in Santa Monica.

A native New Yorker, Kevin and his partner Brittany and their two dogs are enjoying all the outdoor adventures available in the Pacific Northwest, including hiking, camping and fly fishing. They also enjoy cooking, and he says the New Yorker in him is always on the hunt for good pizza and bagels.

Executive Chef, El Gaucho Bellevue

Chef Edison Mays’ passion for cooking started in the kitchen as a young man and he lives his mantra of “Food is love, be as one!” He began his culinary education at The Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. He was chosen for the Food Network show, ‘Cooking School Stories’, a reality-based show which followed several students through their culinary education. This led to other culinary entertainment work including KCAL’s TV Diner with Chef Mario Martinoli, Soap Talk, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Food Network’s Party Starters.  He worked as a private chef in Hollywood and then traveled the world to cook in Vietnam, France, Nevis, and British Columbia. In Whistler, Canada he joined the Four Seasons Resort Whistler where he participated in the 2010 Olympics and developed the concept for the award-winning SIDECUT Modern Steak. He launched the Burger Bar in Flame Restaurant at Four Seasons in Vail, Colorado and then moved to Miami as Executive Sous Chef at the St. Regis Bal Harbour where he collaborated and created four new culinary concepts.

Chef Mays joined El Gaucho in October 2022 following a meeting with CEO, Chad Mackay after determining that the company’s commitment to service and hospitality lined up with his own. When he is not leading the culinary team at El Gaucho Bellevue, Edison enjoys spending time with his wife LaTiana and getting out in nature – especially fly fishing. He grew up in Santa Ana, California and is part of a large family dedicated to service in our military forces and medical fields.
