Chef, Owner

Ben’s career in the culinary field spans more than twenty years. A graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, SC, he gained valuable experience working for premier Atlanta restaurants Pricci, La Tavola and Barcelona Wine Bar. Ben moved to Houston in 2013 to open Batanga and also was the Culinary Director for Prohibition and Conservatory. Opening Boh Pasta & Pizza is what Ben has strived for his entire career.

BOH is me coming full circle, back to my first love – cooking Italian cuisine.
To me, it’s about the simplicity and the use of great ingredients. It’s rustic – with no pretension.

For Ben, it is about the farmers, artisanal producers, and all that help provide the restaurant with its ingredients.
