John Schenk
John Schenk brings a wealth of knowledge, leadership and culinary expertise as the executive chef of Strip House (New York City, Houston, Livingston, Naples, Key West, and Las Vegas) one of the country’s top steakhouses.

As executive chef, Schenk joins Peter, Penny and Mathew Glazier, the owners of The Glazier Group, to supervise the busy kitchens of Strip House. In 1994, Schenk was chef at mad.61 at Barney’s New York when he first met Peter and Penny Glazier. The Glaziers quickly hired him for the recreation and reopening and of their restaurant, Monkey Bar. While serving as executive chef at Monkey Bar, Schenk received the Food and Wine Magazine’s “Best New Chefs” award. Schenk later became the executive chef for Strip House, Houston and transformed downtown into a vibrant dining scene.

Schenk’s next step was to move into the role of executive chef of Strip House. “Steakhouses are the upper echelon of fine dining in most cities,” says Schenk, “and with Strip House we bring a modern approach to that experience.” Strip House offers an indulgent menu full of decadent dishes such as the signature truffle creamed spinach, goose fat potatoes and a 24 layer chocolate cake. “I love doing a twist on steakhouse classics, and introducing new menu items to the restaurant. It’s exciting to watch Strip House’s popularity grow with each restaurant opening,” Schenk says.
