ake Worden's first job out of high school was as a prep cook at Citrolaâ€™s Italian Restaurant in Fort Myers Florida, where he moved from line cook to kitchen manager before he enrolled in college at the University of Florida. While in college he took a position at the prestigious Gainesville Golf and Country Club. Under tutelage of credited executive chefs, he worked his way to sous chef while attending school. His first job opportunity out of college was to take the sous chef position at another highly acclaimed club in Florida, the Bradenton Yacht Club. Within one year he took the promotion to executive chef. During his tenure Jake managed the fine dining experience at a 125 seat restaurant and bar as well as weddings and numerous special events. Jake had an opportunity to partner in an oil and gas company in his native state of Wyoming in 2007, where they operated a successful contract company for 13 years. He was invited to host a guest chef event at a restaurant in Wyoming which was an overwhelming success and rekindled his love of the kitchen. He is coming to Mesquite to bring food that Mesquite needs and wants!
Jake and I started a life and love partnership in early 2012. I was previously in a management position and changed to manage Jakeâ€™s company as Human Resource and customer relations, building forever relationships with our clients. Together we bring with us a food first, friendly inviting atmosphere that will be the place to be in Mesquite! The menu will be classic affordable fine dining from all tastes around the globe. Specials and appetizers offering new and unique dishes that will separate us from Mesquiteâ€™s current options. Our travels both domestic and abroad have shaped our menu and specials to reflect favorites and seasonal offerings which will include fresh seafood, vegetables, meats and more!V We are hoping The Worden will be open by the time you are reading this magazine. We are located at 555 Highland Drive in Mesquite, Nevada. Our phone number is (702) 346-5550. Follow us on social media for details of our grand opening.
