Raton Chamber Platinum Member Brings “BBQ Elevated” to Raton
“If you wanna to do something big you gotta act big.” Steve Hayden, Executive Chef, and owner of the recently opened Historic Icehouse Restaurant, has made a big impact on the restaurant scene in Raton. Hayden and his wife Kyan, after years of experience building clubs and restaurants, decided to give Steve’s culinary expertise room to run. They wanted to give Raton an outstanding restaurant good enough to bring people from the surrounding area and travelers off of I-25 in to Raton to eat. The Haydens bought the old icehouse on Second Street, developed a menu they could get excited about and renovated the building to fit their concept. Seven months ago they opened The Historic Icehouse Restaurant which serves “BBQ Elevated.”
