An Omaha native, Chef Bobby has been in the hospitality industry for 20 years. Twelve of the best years were spent with M’s Pub and former sister restaurant Vivace from 2002 to 2014. He fell in love with the culture of M’s as well as the freedom to create M’s well known dishes using all ingredients, techniques and cuisines available.
While completing his associate degree in culinary arts and hospitality management he met his wife and M’s Pub pastry chef, Preslie Mekiney. Both were awarded the James Beard Award of Excellence in their graduating year. Bobby then continued on to get his bachelors in organizational leadership.
Bobby and Preslie along with their three young daughters will be found gardening, fishing and any outdoor activity while away from the restaurant.
