Brad Costa, Okeechobee Steakhouse
Chef Brad Costa is a fourth generation chef who remembers cooking by the age of three. Costa grew up in Palm Beach County and graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. In his 19 years of working in restaurants, he has traveled around the south, learning the art of cooking under top-notch chefs in New Orleans; Birmingham, Alabama, and right here in Lake Worth. “Food is the coolest thing in the world to me,” says Costa. “It’s always changing and that excites me.” When he’s not in the Okeechobee Steakhouse kitchen, Costa enjoys traveling to new places to eat and cook with locals.
