Johnny Sheehan, Executive Chef, Liquid Art House
Inspired by cooking in his home kitchen at a young age, Johnny took his first job in the restaurant industry washing dishes at age 14. As a young adult, he peered into the Boston restaurant scene while making deliveries all over the city as a tractor trailer driver. That experience reigniting his passion for cooking. When he courageously made a pivotal career turn and enrolled at the acclaimed Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he earned his degree and had what he describes as “life-changing experiences” along the way.
While at Le Cordon Bleu, Johnny’s passion for culinary art impressed his instructors and took his education to a different level. They invested hours of their time beyond the school day teaching him about molecular gastronomy and raw ingredients in open Asian markets. Opportunity knocked while he was still in culinary school and post-degree when
he went to work under celebrated Chef Ken Oringer at Boston’s renowned French Modern American restaurant Clio. Johnny worked tirelessly to learn each station in the kitchen and moved up the line. Then he jumped at the opportunity to work alongside Chef Chris Gould at Clio’s notable sushi bar, Uni. His next chapter began on Boston’s South Shore when he took the reigns at The New World Tavern, a gastropub in Plymouth, Massachusetts. First, Sheehan elevated the cuisine to match the Tavern’s award-winning beer selection. The result? His menu along with The New World’s beer selection went on to win Boston Magazines “Best casual restaurant south of Boston.” During his time south of Boston, Johnny also brought together a group of respected South Shore chefs and organized a series of Chef Dinners featuring organic and sustainable ingredients from local farms and purveyors.
Johnny Sheehan’s passion for cooking and unwavering attention to detail combined with his unique take on Asian-inspired cuisine is evident when you speak to him and have the pleasure of sampling his dishes. Chef Sheehan is currently the Executive Chef of Liquid Art House. Constantly inspired by the ever-changing art installations brought into the restaurant/lounge/art gallery by owner Ruta Laukien, he creates modern American cuisine with world-class flavor and techniques.
