We love what we do

Executive Chef

Hussein Rahal (Chef Ray)

The hospitality industry is everything to me. I cook because it brings me happiness. I believe in the power of food and how it brings people and communities together. Since I was young growing up in Dearborn, MI. I have had a deep passion for what I do. I would always follow my mother around the kitchen and help in every way possible. From there she taught me a lot about traditional cooking at a very young age. It was also a tradition in my family to sit around the dinner table together, share stories and have a great time. Growing up I’ve always knew that I wanted to become a chef and an inspiration to others within my industry.

I earned my culinary degree from HFC and then moved on to earn my Bachelors from Eastern Michigan University, focusing on hotel restaurant management. I worked in various culinary positions, everything from fine dining, to fast casual, private dining and banquet service as well. I worked with Delaware North’s Tigers club Detroit, Landry’s restaurants, Edgewood’s private Country club, Express seafood and Afor, I later decided to start my own journey with one of the most unique brands in town. Joining SoHo Grand Banquet as it’s executive chef is a dream come true for me. Our SoHo Grand leadership team is poised to provide exceptional experience for all guests. We pride ourselves in being detail oriented, professional, welcoming and being your co-host to make all your events a success.
