Michael Q. Kim “Chef Q”, Executive Chef


Michael Q. Kim, is most popularly recognized from his appearance on the first season of Gordon Ramsay's TV show on Fox “MasterChef.” Chef Q was a serious contender with a large audience of supporters. He was praised for his swift pace and the unique flavors of his amazing dishes. Chef Q, a 15-year industry veteran, fell in love with eccentric cuisine at an early age. His mother exposed him to a wide variety of foods growing up including Korean-inflected dishes from the Joy of Cooking. From this exposure Chef Q developed an appreciation for good tasting food and a unique approach to flavors. He began his career in mostly front-of-the-house roles, working in small restaurants as well as mega-eateries such as Nobu and Megu in New York. Chef Q eventually made his way back to SoCal, landing at South Coast Plaza's Hamamori, then at Sashi in Manhattan Beach. Around this time, he decided to audition for “MasterChef,” and, much to his surprise, got on the show, became a finalist, and finished sixth among thousands of contestants. In late 2010, Mike Q. Kim secured a coveted gig at the acclaimed restaurant, The Bazaar by José Andrés in the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, where he still currently consults on creating unique dishes for celebrities and loyal customers of the award renowned Hotel and Restaurant.
