Kamryn Booth - Executive Sous Chef
"Kam" is such a kind and talented human. She is a local girl made good. Even at her young age, she is a fast learner with more talent than should seem possible.
Her culinary education is from Le Cordon Bleu Boston. She has worked fine dining to brasserie and has been with the UNION STRAW team from the planning stages over a year before we opened. Her culinary talents are immense and her skills as a leader are growing by the day in our kitchen. She is definitely the sweet part of this team and the best gal for the job.
Steve Pesek - General Manager
Steve has been with the UNION STRAW team since the fall, but transitioned to the General Manager role when the restaurant became officially open. He was the mad scientist behind our opening cocktail, wine, and beer lists and managed the social media and communications for the restaurant from the initial launch.
As GM, he brings over 15 years of hospitality experience and has managed restaurants of all sizes, including most recently, the 400-seat season ticket holder space at the home of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field. The Minnesota native brings a wealth of knowledge in many weird and trivial areas to the UNION STRAW team.
