Peak’s management team are a collection of industry experts who bring unrivaled knowledge and skill.
Prior to leading the kitchen at Peak, Rose collaborated with acclaimed chef Marcus Samuelsson, opening Hav & Mar in Chelsea. The restaurant showcased the vibrant flavors of the Caribbean, North Africa, and Southern cuisine, providing Rose with a platform to express her creativity and culinary expertise.
A Brooklyn native, she found passion in the kitchen from an early age. Seeking an escape from the bustling household she grew up in, Rose discovered her love for cooking and began experimenting with flavors and ingredients in her home kitchen. Influenced by her parents, who were both exceptional cooks, Rose developed a deep appreciation for the culinary arts and their distinct ability to evoke cultures – a sense of time and place – with the combinations of flavors and textures.
