Born in Southern Illinois, and putting down roots in Omaha, NE, partner and Executive Chef Amos Watts, learned on the family farm how to grow vegetables, tend to the land and the essential value of agriculture and seasonality. Sowing the seeds of what will become his career path.
Attending college, Watts began working in kitchens and soon developed a passion for cooking, leading him to culinary school. With a degree from Johnson and Wales in 2003 and years of experience as a Sous Chef, Amos moved to Northern California and worked most notably, as the Sous Chef for Chef Douglas Keane at Cyrus restaurant in Healdsburg, California. At Cyrus, Watts met Steve Redzikowski working on the line at the acclaimed two Michelin star California restaurant.
Chef Watts moved back to Denver and began working at Jax Fish House in lower downtown Denver.
