Rick Moonen - RM Seafoods, Las Vegas

Rick Moonen has devoted his career to being America’s top culinary advocate for sustainable seafood. A native New Yorker, he graduated first in his class from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, in 1978. He apprenticed at L’Hostellerie Bressane in Hillsdale, NY, working side by side with Chef Jean Morel. In February 2005, Rick opened Rick Moonen’s RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. The multilevel restaurant offers regional coastal favorites, a world-class raw bar, and inventive tasting and à la carte menus. When not behind the stove, Rick can be found traveling throughout the U.S. educating about the dangers of over-fishing and the importance of ocean conservation.
