A former musical theatre actor turned restaurateur, Zac hails from the great state of Louisiana. After spending several years working around the country as a professional actor, in 2013, Zac took the leap in the New York food scene and quickly climbed his way up the ranks in restaurant management. Zac has worked in several roles in some of New York’s favorite restaurants including the Burger & Lobster USA flagship location, Chef Alex Stupak's Empellón Taqueria in the West Village, and most recently as general manager for Talde in Jersey City. Zac will always credit his conservatory training as his best tool when it comes to successfully running a restaurant, and creating a comfortable and inclusive environment for all to enjoy. Currently residing in downtown Jersey City, Zac lives with his fiancé Clark, and their two beautiful rescue pups, Max & Marvin.
