George’s on the Cove & Galaxy Taco | San Diego, CA

Born in Hawaii and raised in Ojai, California, Chef Trey Foshee has always drawn inspiration from the ocean. His restaurant career began as a busboy earning tips to support his surfing habit. Today, he is the executive chef, partner and creative force behind George’s at the Cove, one of the highest grossing independent restaurants in America, and Galaxy Taco, a casual Mexican eatery recently opened in La Jolla Shores.

A classically trained graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Trey’s focus is on nature’s best ingredients, resulting in pure, intensified flavors that have become the signature of San Diego’s most popular restaurant and helped to define the cuisine of the region. His approach has earned him continued acclaim, from one of “America’s Ten Best New Chefs” by Food & Wine in the late 90s, to “Chef of the Year” by the California Travel Industry Association in 2004, and the San Diego Chefs Hall of Fame in 2010. He serves on the Culinary Council for ment’or BKB alongside many other prestigious national chefs.
