At the age of 36, Amy Eubanks is already at the helm of one of New York City’s most beloved seafood restaurants, BLT Fish (Zagat gives it a 24/30 food rating).Eubanks, who attended culinary school and worked in some of Manhattan’s best kitchens, spent nine months as the lead cook at BLT Steak while awaiting the opening of BLT Fish, one of famed chef Laurent Tourondel’s seven New York restaurants.
After nine months as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine, she was promoted to Executive Chef in March 2010.
Today she puts a creative spin on BLT Fish’s extensive seafood menu. She recently agreed to take photos of a typical day on the job so we could see what it’s really like to run the kitchen in a major New York restaurant.
That day she made a quick pit stop at the library. She needs something to read for her 30-minute commute to the restaurant on West 17th Street.
After arriving at BLT fish, she checks that all the food orders came in on time for the night's rush.
