Jo Jo DoyleChef Joseph “Jo-Jo” Doyle is the Executive Chef of our neighbor, Honda Center. We’ll catch up with Chef Jo-Jo and continue with the report on a taste of what’s new at Honda Center.

We’ll peak inside the Suites as well as tour the Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Club and learn about the Rotating Chefs Tables. At Jack Daniel’s there is both a Bar Menu and Restaurant Menu. On the night of the recent media preview a line cook was frying potato pancakes to order at one of the Chef Tables.

The new “soon to be famous” dessert cart (with every tempting treat freshly-prepared and baked in-house) is not to be missed. The dessert cart is also available to ticket-holders at two locations in the building.

Chef Doyle is responsible for managing all food and beverage offerings at Honda Center, including The Shock Top Terrace, Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Club Restaurant & Bar, Standing ‘O’, concessions and catering.

Prior to joining Honda Center he served as Executive Chef at the legendary Churchill Downs. There he was responsible for creating all menus throughout the venue for the annual running of the Kentucky Derby.
