Tien Ho has worked at Má Pêche, Momofuku Ssäm Bar, and Montmartre, but since he left the latter in October of 2013, he has stayed away from traditional restaurant kitchens — unfortunately, an increasingly popular choice these days. After overseeing concept development for the Morgans Hotel Group, Ho has decided to continue on the corporate route: He’ll serve as Whole Foods’ global vice-president of culinary and hospitality. He’ll relocate to Austin for the job, but this is actually somewhat of a homecoming, as Ho started his career in the city, and worked at hotels across Texas.
