Ambassador Chefs, McInnis and Booth were born and raised in Niceville, Florida and in Perth, Australia respectively and boast two diverse and impressive culinary resumes. After traveling the world and experimenting with different cultures and cuisines, the couple, who met while working together in Miami, and opened Root & Boot in NYC, decided to expand their culinary brands to their beloved city of Miami. They chose the hip Sunset Harbour area for Stiltsville Fish Bar, a Florida fish house concept, in partnership with Grove Bay Hospitality Group.
Soon after the opening of Stiltsville, McInnis and Booth opened their second Miami restaurant, a pop-up of their New York City southern restaurant, Root & Bone, in Miami Beach’s Shelborne South Beach Hotel.
McInnis and Booth have both appeared on Bravo’s Emmy award-winning “Top Chef,” putting their personalities and talent front and center on a national stage. Chef Booth was a recent semi-finalist for a James Beard Award of Rising Star Chef of the Year and has been recognized in publications including both Forbes and Zagat’s 30 Under 30 awards.
