New York Prime Beef
Farmer, chef, grocer and buyer, Josh Tanner has worked in the food and culinary industries for most of his life, always searching for new experiences and ideas. Starting as a teenager working front and back of the house positions in humble restaurants, he quickly found his passion for cooking and worked his way through casual and fine dining restaurants up and down the East Coast. Never one to settle, he became Chef d’ Cuisine and discovered his strength lay in creating simple yet flavorful food in which the ingredients speak for themselves. He won’t deny a strong affection for latin flavors, hot peppers, and comfort food.
After coming back to the East Coast from Seattle the pieces of the last 20 years all came together. Immersing himself in the meat industry when an opportunity arose, Josh found a home. As a Partner in New York Prime Beef and Managing Director of Retail Brands for Vista Food Exchange, Josh oversees the sourcing, aging, and selecting of the finest meats on the planet for the most discerning customers. Always happiest when he’s focused on food and sharing it with people, bringing New York Prime Beef to the public has been a labor of love.
