Meet Chef Trey

Born and raised in Seattle, Trey Lamont knew from a young age that he wanted to be a cook, his passion sparked by early experience in his grandmother’s kitchen. Today, he is the owner and head chef at Jerk Shack, a Caribbean restaurant praised by the Seattle Times, Seattle Magazine, and Zagat for its bold, authentic flavors and warm hospitality. The menu is inspired by Lamont’s Jamaican heritage, with a focus on made-from-scratch cooking using house-ground spices, smoked and fried to perfection.
