Call in to speak with the host
(This interview was rescheduled from July.)
Chef Rick Moonen not only strives to educate his guests about the importance of seafood sustainability and conservation, but demonstrates his commitment by serving only sustainable, seasonal varieties of ingredients found throughout his menu at rm seafood at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. He is a founding member of the Seafood Choices Alliances, which named him “Seafood Champion” in 2006, as well as an active member of Seaweb and Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch, which named him “Chef of the Year” in 2011. In 2009 he made a memorable appearance as a contestant on Bravo’s hit series, "Top Chef Masters," followed by a stint as a judge on "Top Chef Las Vegas," where his restaurant served as the location for the show’s popular “Restaurant Wars” episode. This led to his participation in the second season of "Top Chef Masters," where Moonen finished as runner-up, raising thousands of dollars for his charity of choice, "Three Square."
