Chef Ralph P. Fernandez, Culinary Director

Based on Ralph’s diverse seasoned experience coupled with his culinary creativity, leadership, and passion, we are confident that he will continue to raise the bar on our REX guest experience with high quality, healthy and delicious menu offerings that excite and amaze

Rex Gryphon (RG) Restaurant Group, a team of hospitality professionals who design, develop and operate dynamic restaurant/entertainment brands that infuse extraordinary dining with upscale entertainment, has appointed renowned industry veteran Ralph P. Fernandez as culinary director.

Fernandez, who brings more than 30 years of entrepreneurial and corporate food and hospitality experience to the restaurant group, will drive the food and beverage vision for RG’s REX (Restaurant, Entertainment, Xperience) network of industry-disrupting themed destinations “where the art of food meets the art of survival.” The post-apocalyptic storied vigilante posts are “none like it” interactive, multi-sensory experiential destination meeting places, dining havens, watering holes and hi-tech VR escape lounges. At the casual, upscale rustic dining and entertainment venues set for national expansion, ‘urbanites’ are encouraged to create and share their own experiences, food is locally sourced, the cocktails surprise. A pre- or post-meal visit to the hi-tech VRex Lounge lets them escape to places they have not yet traveled.

“Based on Ralph’s diverse seasoned experience coupled with his culinary creativity, leadership, and passion, we are confident that he will continue to raise the bar on our REX guest experience with high quality, healthy and delicious menu offerings that excite and amaze,” shared hospitality industry veteran Michael Norris who leads the development of Rex Gryphon Brands. The RG currently operates its first Vigilante Post, Mad Rex (themadrex.com) in Philadelphia and will soon debut its second vigilante post, Rex Baron (therexbaron.com) in South Florida at the Town Center in Boca Raton this fall.

Serving in several culinary capacities, Fernandez’s career spans BOH, FOH and private chef positions for the Four Seasons (Houston), The Pierre Hotel (New York City), Garden City Hotel (5-Diamond/4-Star), Harrah’s Philadelphia (a division of Caesar’s Entertainment Corp.) and California Café restaurant group. His most recent industry accolades have been earned for his leadership for the Fearless Restaurant Group (a 12-year tenure driving the iconic Philadelphia landmark Moshulu Restaurant, White Dog Cafes, Louie Louie, Autograph Brasserie), Trinity Hospitality Group, Forage American Brasserie and Denim American Bistro.
