Jayson Munguia

Executive Chef

Get to know Chef Jayson and don't hesitate to say "hello" and introduce yourself on your next visit!

Tell us about yourself and why you became a chef?
I became a chef because I found that I really enjoy cooking for others and bringing joy into their lives with my food. I'm the type of person who loves cooking for others just to see them happy. It's one of the few ways I know I can bring joy into peoples lives. Having the ability to make someone happy with the food you make is absolutely priceless to me and very rewarding. I like to think of myself as a servant-hearted chef, I love serving others.

What is something people may not know about you?
I actually went to school for medical assisting and nursing instead of culinary arts.

What are you looking forward to as Executive Chef and what are a few of your favorite dishes?
One of the things that I am most looking forward to is being able to work with all the great people we have here at Juliet Italian Kitchen. I had been working hand in hand with Chef Jacob for a little over 2 years here. I am very proud and honored to lead this team and carry on everything that Jacob has helped us to be. We have a tremendous amount of potential with our team and we are growing very quickly. This team has always had a "put the guest first" type of mentality which is something that I really love about Juliet. Some of my favorite dishes here are the Chicken Scarpariello, Margherita Pizza, and Spaghetti Bolognese.
