Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, Kevin Devanney has claimed Charlotte as home for 22 years. A graduate of Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, Kevin played soccer for the Ravens. At the age of 15, Kevin worked in an Italian restaurant as a bus boy, waiter and developed a love for the hospitality industry. Kevin was trained as a chef on the famous Italian Hill neighborhood in St. Louis. The Sicilian culture and southern Italian foods became an integral part of Kevin’s passion for cooking and serving customers. After college, Kevin moved to front of the house as General Manager of an Italian Restaurant in St. Louis. For the past 2 decades Kevin has owned and operated Incentive Travel Solutions, a successful group travel company. Kevin and his team planned and operated Corporate President’s Club trips in over 106 countries around the world. His famed trips include being the only company to host a private event in the legendary Colosseum in Rome. Kevin and his team also hosted private dinners and events in the Louvre Museum in Paris and the Kremlin in Moscow.
"Chefs care about tradition because they treat honor as a verb. It is their privilege to create a world for the guest. From the moment the first light goes on in the kitchen to the last flame going out at the end of service, everything a chef knows about life goes into that evening."
ST. LOUIS STYLE PIZZA
We know Charlotte is a melting pot of cultures with as many opinions on pizza styles. St. Louis style pizza is a thin crust pizza with a unique blend of cheeses. We are spending hours searching for the perfect quality of toppings such as Italian Salsiccia Sausage, black olives and pepperoni. In addition to the St. Louis style, Chef Luis will be creating a mix of traditional Italian and Napolitano pizzas including the classic Margarita pizza. These pizzas will be created with traditional sauces and mozzarella cheese.
