FOUNDER + CHEF SCOTT SCHYMIK

Having a life-long passion for food, Chef Scott Schymik knew there was a place for his vision in his home town. A Rietz Memorial High School graduate, his career began as an apprentice to Master Chef Horst Galow in 1996 at Kirby's Private Dining. He spent 5 years training to take over as Head Chef in 2001 and went on to purchase Kirby's in 2004. He remained the owner and chef of Kirbys until 2014, at which time he decided to make it his own. After a remodel project, Kirby's became Sauced and The Ballroom at Sauced. In 2019, Chef Scott Schymik was ready to expand. He purchased and remodeled the building we call home and opened Schymik's Kitchen where he continues to pour into our community through fine dining and memorable experiences.

Devin McBride is a native of Newburgh, Indiana and has been a resident of the Haynie’s Corner area for seven years. She is excited to bring her dining expertise as Front of House Manager after reaching a decade’s worth of restaurant and bar experience. Starting in a corporate atmosphere, she discovered how much passion she had for this industry, especially with crafting signature cocktails as a mixologist. If you frequent Downtown Evansville you will recognize Devin from Peephole Bar and Grill, Entwined Wine and Cocktail Bar, and Fidel’s Bourbon and Cigar Lounge. She has also been known to make guest mixology appearances within the cocktail scene around town.

Devin looks forward to continuing her journey into hospitality and is honored to be given the opportunity to have a hand in creating a curated and delicious atmosphere at Schymik’s Kitchen, the premier location for upscale dining in Evansville!
