Executive Chef Brian Morales
As a kid, chef Brian Morales grew up around great family and food. His mother cooked Peruvian food every day, and he was spoiled. Most of the dishes his mother prepared contained potato, which is one of his favorite ingredients. His aunt, a line cook at PF Chang’s took him to work with her and introduced him to the chef’s life, and the rest is history.
Morales started as a dishwasher and quickly climbed the ladder, eventually working all the stations. The experience made him realize how much he loves food, the industry, and the fact that he was learning something new every day made him realized that this was his calling.
Morales worked for three years at one of Jersey City’s best restaurants Amelia’s Bistro, and one of New Jersey’s top restaurants as a Sous chef at Peter Lorias Cafe Matisse in East Rutherford serving new American eclectic cuisine.

Very nice restaurant, with a great location. The food is delicious and the ambiance incredible. The music was perfect, not loud at all.
Excelente comida y excelente la atención.
The ambiance and decor were electrifying. My girlfriend and I decided to have dinner and drinks. The mojito bought me back to Miami just enough sugar cane but not too sweet and refreshing!
My husband and I, along with amazing friends visited Son Cubano in West New York, and I must say it was indeed a memorable time.
