Kings Island has announced two important additions for the new season: a new Executive Chef and a new restaurant will come on board for 2023.

The park’s new executive chef will be Joseph Perez, and in his words is “excited to join the talented Food and Beverage team here at Kings Island and looking forward to helping the park continue to grow its menu options with fresh, locally sourced items. 

“I want families and friends visiting the park to be able to gather together around a table, have an excellent dining experience and make lasting Kings Island memories.”

“Our guests continue to tell us that the park’s culinary offering is such an important part of their visit to Kings Island,” said Mike Koontz, Kings Island vice president and general manager. “Our reputation as a place where they can come together and enjoy unique food offerings and traditional amusement park favorites is in good hands with Chef Perez.”

The second of Kings Island’s announcements was the unveiling of its new restaurant called Grain & Grill. The gastronomic venue will offer Eastern European and Mediterranean flavors and will open this springtime.
