Our Chef

Owner and Executive Chef Cory Hughes has been delighting the Pittsburgh region’s dining public for nearly two decades. Award-winning and celebrated, Chef Cory’s culinary passion and skill have graced the tables of Cafe at the Frick, Spoon, Eleven, and Six Penn. Cory, a Le Cordon Bleu graduate, views owning Fig & Ash as the culmination of “every chef’s dream—start with great food, make it with love, and share that love with the public.”

“I just want to thrill guests, play with fire, and not have a boss.”
