The Owners

Edmund Abay and Melissa Jade Abay are local owners who are involved with the Pocket/Greenhaven community and have children who attend school locally. Jade grew up in the area, went away for college, and now is raising a family with Edmund in Pocket/Greenhaven. She supported herself through college by working as a bartender and waitress and just so happened to meet her husband, Edmund Abay, while working at P.F. Chang’s, Sacramento.

Pocket Bistro’s Chef, Edmund Abay received his Associates Degree in Culinary Arts at the California Culinary Academy, San Francisco in 1995. He started his career as a cook at Kubota in 1996, a neighborhood restaurant in San Jose. He was able to enhance his skills in Asian cooking while observing the expectations of the local community. In 1999, Edmund was offered a job as Chef De Cuisine at the Harborside Bistro in Bellingham, Washington. Here, he was given the opportunity to help Executive Chef, Joseph Merkling, develop Harborside’s menu. At the fine dining Harborside Bistro, Edmund was able to improve his expertise in American Cuisine. In 2000, he started his position at P.F. Chang’s as Sous Chef where he learned to manage a large kitchen in a casual corporate atmosphere. In 2006, he was offered a job at Ruth’s Chris Steak House as Sous Chef, where he managed the kitchen in a fine dining corporate atmosphere. Edmund was able to observe the attributes of P.F. Chang’s and Ruth’s Chris Steak House as successful restaurants, but at the same time, the opportunity to express his creativity was limited. By starting Pocket Bistro, Chef Edmund Abay, is eager and delighted to express his creativity to his guests.
