Chefs Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth proudly launched Sunny Side Up Hospitality (SSUH) in 2017. The duo currently operates restaurants in Manhattan, Miami, and Puerto Rico. Both born to cook, they keep their hands deep in not only the recipes but all steps of starting a business from the ground up, from the restaurant and kitchen design, conceptualizing menus and beverage programs, to physical construction – the team doesn’t miss a detail.
Their first concept Root & Bone, a quaint and homey southern locale, was born summer 2013 in Manhattan’s edgy East Village neighborhood. The restaurant enabled Jeff and Janine to plant their roots as partners in the Big Apple, bringing them national notoriety including being named NYC’s best Fried Chicken by multiple media outlets and set the stage for the power couple’s later opportunities. Most recently, Sunny Side Up Hospitality opened its first pop-up venture in Rio Marr, Puerto Rico where they offer a fun Caribbean take on Root & Bone. In 2015 they expanded back to Miami, where the partners originally met, to open a fun and unique dim sum concept, The Sarsaparilla Club in the heart of South Beach at the Shelborne Hotel.
Today SSUH is proud to launch its highly-anticipated ocean-to-table, chef-driven concept, Stiltsville Fish Bar. This down-home Florida fish house is set to open September 2017 in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood.
