He pairs a passion for exceptionally fresh fish with bold flavors and local produce.

At Reef, Bryan has translated his love of fishing onto the plate by featuring less commonly known fish and rotating the menu constantly to introduce diners to more than 87 species from the Gulf Coast since opening the restaurant. Open since 2007, REEF has received rave reviews from critics and helped Bryan earn several prominent culinary awards.

Bryan went on to expand his Houston culinary empire with Little Bigs, a casual restaurant featuring a variety of sliders and milkshakes, and El Real Tex-Mex Café, featuring vintage Tex-Mex cuisine.

In 2015, Bryan partnered with noted pitmaster Greg Gatlin to open Jackson Street BBQ, located near Minute Maid Park.

Bryan competed on season 3 of Food Network's The Next Iron Chef and has appeared on numerous tel
