Fish On promotes Rodriguez to executive chef

Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, recently announced the promotion of Raul Rodriguez to executive chef at Fish On, 17300 N. Village Main Blvd., Lewes.

Rodriguez, a Los Angeles native, has been in the hospitality industry since he was 17.

“Raul has so much talent,” Kammerer said. “He’s as considerate to his staff as he is creative in the kitchen. He’s such a nice person.”

“We were so lucky to find Raul, who is so good at what he does and yet humble about it,” Doug Ruley, corporate chef for SoDel Concepts, said. “He has endless potential; I look forward to seeing him grow as a chef and as a leader in the restaurant industry.”

Rodriguez, who moved to the Delaware beaches in 2002, attended Cape Henlopen High School. He started as a sous chef under Maurice Catlett, then the executive chef at Fish On, and Jen Myers, the chef for Plate Catering, SoDel Concepts’ catering arm. Rodriguez became the executive chef at Fish On when Catlett opened Matt’s Fish Camp in Lewes in 2016.
