Jose Gamez

Executive Sous Chef

Edge, Steak & Bar Downtown


Childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut were put to the side when Jose Gamez discovered his passion for food in the North End of his hometown of Boston. His experience at a local restaurant in Little Italy is what convinced Chef Gamez that he belonged in the kitchen.

The head chef at the local mom-and-pop restaurant saw something in Chef Gamez from the very beginning. It must have been his strong worth ethic and eagerness to learn that earned him an apprenticeship and thus began Chef Jose’s culinary endeavors.

With several years of experience under his belt, Gamez was ready for his next professional step. He has worked in all areas of the kitchen, from smaller operations to ones that are much larger scale. His move up the kitchen ladder to Executive Sous Chef at EDGE Steak and bar is credited to a mix of dedication, hard work and an undying adoration of food.

Along with innovative pasta specials, Chef Jose enjoys crafting wine-pairing menus. “I see wine as something that not only enhances the taste of food but also gives the meal a story,” says Gamez.
