Peter Vauthy

Red, the Steakhouse

Executive Chef Peter Vauthy is turning the steakhouse business on its side and mixing things up while staying true to his home grown roots. Both inspired by what he learned from his family and incorporating his own unique perspective on the classics, Peter’s envelope pushing, culinary masterpieces come from the marriage of innovation and tradition.

Chef Peter’s style shines through on Red’s unparalleled menu. What’s his secret? Relationships. Sourcing each item from individual purveyors. Chef Peter works closely with his personal contacts, from fisheries to farms, to have access to the freshest ingredients seasonly available. Ingredients such as fresh Alaskan King Crab flown in straight from the Bering Sea or Blue Fin Tuna caught fresh and shipped in overnight are examples of his personal relationships that he has developed throughout his 10 year tenure with Red Restaurant Group.

Vauthy started with the Red Restaurant Group in 2001. He was hired to lead the team at Moxie, The Restaurant in Cleveland, which was named one of the top 50 restaurants in the country while under his culinary watch. He then went on to be named Executive Chef at Moxie’s sister restaurant the original Red, the Steakhouse.

After tremendous success in Cleveland, Peter brought his expertise to South Florida in 2008, opening up Red, the Steakhouse in Miami Beach. Most recently Vauthy launched Red, the Steakhouse Boca Raton as well as Rosso, Italia, the company’s new Italian bistro concept. Since relocating to South Florida, Chef Peter has also played a key role in the country’s largest wine and food festival, the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, participating annually in “The Best Of The Best” Chef event. In 2013, he will also be showcasing a selection of Red’s signature dishes at the festival’s coveted BubbleQ event, as well as hosting a dinner event at Red, the Steakhouse alongside the Food Network’s star and fellow Cleveland native Chef Michael Symon.

Vauthy has also gained national recognition upon making his TV debut on The Travel Channel show “Bizarre Foods” withrenowned Chef Andrew Zimmern, while his most recent endeavor includes a partnership with Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger, owned by the creator of Fiji water. Chef Peter has been commissioned to create the official recipes for the organic ginger company.

Chef Peter takes pride in Red’s unmatched standards. By using only the highest quality meat in the nation, Certified Angus Beef Prime, and sourcing the freshest ingredients in the world through his relationships, he sets the bar high. Armed with his knowledge of the industry and love for cooking, Chef Peter continues to serve up his interpretation of “classic steakhouse” accented by his trademark bold, pure flavors.
