About Joey C

Joe Catalano (aka Joey C) is a born and bred native New Yorker from Queens. He also lived in Italy for five years, which is where he began developing a life-long passion for good food.

As an adult, Joey knew exactly what he wanted to do in life; cook. He graduated from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York in 1989 and that’s where his culinary adventures began. After years of working the circuit from California to Manhattan as a chef at gourmet restaurants, hotels and exclusive private clubs, Joey was ready for a change; comfort food … with a twst. The Roadhouse reflects Joey’s love of BBQ and Mexican cuisine.
