Wes Kent

Silver Queen
Monroe, Georgia

Chef Wes Kent is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University’s Culinary program. Through school, Kent landed an internship at a few of Georgia’s favorite restaurants including Hugh Acheson’s 5&10, The National under Chef Peter Dale, and Empire State South with Chef Josh Hopkins. Kent then took his first head chef position in Thomasville, helming the kitchen for Sweet Grass Dairy and then Liam’s restaurant.

Currently, Kent leads the Silver Queen kitchen, crafting fabulous seasonal offerings and encouraging his team to create alongside him. Silver Queen opened in March of 2020, when his dream of restaurant ownership was realized in the quaint downtown area of Monroe, Georgia. Traditional Mexican dishes and southern staples with a Mexican twist make up the Silver Queen menu.

Kent enjoys life on their farm just outside of Monroe with his wife Magli and their two young boys, Harry and Rex. They raise Meishan pigs and honeybees on their land where they enjoy daily outdoor adventures exploring as a family.
