My name is Rayshawna Thomas and I major in hospitality here  at NIU, graduating in December of 2013. I am the dining room manager of Bahama Breeze, a Caribbean based cuisine. We at Bahama Breeze hope to bring new flavors to your pallets and excellent service .  I look forward to seeing everyone during our weeks of service and hope you enjoy the menu we have worked so hard to create!

Shane Eicksteadt

Hello, I am Shane Eicksteadt. I am a senior majoring in nutrition and dietetics with a minor in chemistry. I hope to eventually work in research and development within the food science industry. I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen with new foods and flavors, and I am pleased to cook for you. When I am not enjoying my time cooking for friends and family, I enjoy exploring the outdoors and capturing its beauty through photography. I am excited to bring you this Caribbean themed menu full of flavor, and I hope you have an enjoyable experience here at Bahama Breeze.

Kenneth Kufahl
Sous Chef

Hello, I am Kenneth Kufahl. I am the Sous Chef at Bahama Breeze restaurant.  I am currently a senior in the nutrition and dietetics program at NIU.  After school, I plan to be a personal trainer and nutritionist.  I first became interested in food while serving in the Marine Corps.  I realized I never wanted to eat tasteless food from a pouch ever again.
