About Us

Desi Vega is the restaurateur of Desi Vega’s Steakhouse, Mr. John’s Steakhouse, and Desi Vega’s Prime Burgers & Shakes.

Desi grew up in the restaurant business and was groomed by Ella Brennan at Commander’s Palace, Ruth Fertel of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Emeril Lagasse. His attention to detail and commitment to excellence makes for a truly memorable dining experience.

Our USDA Prime steaks are carefully selected, hand-cut and aged for tenderness, then seared to perfection and served on a sizzling plate. Seafood selections include steamed crabs and lobster, three types of Gulf fish in various preparations each day, and plenty of other seafood.
