About Jeff McInnis
Jeff McInnis is the executive chef/partner of Root & Bone, Roots Coastal Kitchen in Puerto Rico and the restaurant Stiltsville. He was born to either fish or cook, and to this day, he would gladly do either. After appearing on the popular Bravo television show, “Top Chef”, Jeff returned to his Miami roots, helming the kitchen at Gigi and then a very successful Southern restaurant on Miami Beach, where he earned himself and the restaurant, three James Beard nominations in two years. In 2013 Jeff decided to take on his next challenge in New York City, where he opened the quaint and much loved Southern restaurant Root & Bone with his partner Janine Booth. This whimsical neighborhood spot in the East Village was an instant success, earning awards including ‘The Best Dish of 2014” by Timeout Magazine and the ‘Best Fried Chicken in NYC” by multiple publications. The pair decided to expand their talents to Puerto Rico, with Roots Coastal Kitchen, before setting their eyes and focus back on their beloved city Miami, FL where they not only expanded their Root & Bone brand the Miami Beach but are bringing only the freshest Florida seafood and genuine Southern hospitality to Miami with their concept, Stiltsville Fish Bar.
