RODNEY MONROIG
Laishley Crab House Manager

A passion for food and a long-standing family tradition influenced Rodney Monroig to pursue a career as a professional Chef. Interested in all aspects of the culinary art, Rodney has seen his cuisine develop throughout the years. A Puerto Rico native, his culinary creations capture a variety of cultures and their cuisine.

A graduate of John & Wales University, Rodney has created menus for many dignitaries and renowned restaurants during the span of his career. He began his career as a Sous Chef for the Naples Beach Hotel, before occupying a position as the kitchen manager for the Primetime restaurant in Englewood.

The technique-driven, large-scale restaurant experience made the perfect segue for his next stop: joining Smuggler's Enterprises, Inc. in 1996 as the Sous Chef. It was at the Captain's Table that Rodney had the privilege of honing his skills while experimenting and collaborating on menus that raised the restaurant's reputation to a true fine dining establishment. Within three years he quickly rose to the position of Executive Chef.

Rodney brings a wealth of personality and culinary expertise to the Captain's Table. He takes great joy in engaging guests, creating innovative cuisine, ensuring flawless production and offering superb service. A celebrity in his own right, Rodney's passion and love for food is clear to everyone who meets him. His passion carries on to his love for sharing his wealth of experience and expertise, acting as an advisor to aid in the design and layout for the kitchen of the newest addition to Smuggler's Enterprises, Inc., Laishley Crab House.
