Matthew Trebek Harlem
Matthew began his career as a bartender, before starting his own Mexican restaurant in Oso, Harlem, New York. His restaurant has a two-bedroom and three-bathroom apartment attached to it.
He founded the Oso, an Innovative Mexican cuisine restaurant he co-owns located in 1618 Amsterdam Ave, New York. Explaining how he got involved in the hospitality industry.
“There was just something about the hospitality industry that I fell in love with,” he says. “It’s great because it’s very free form in that it allows you to venture out into so many different fields: design, food, drinks, music, graphic design, and even just talking to people.”
Upon venturing into the restaurant business, Mather would go to the local farmer’s market every Sunday to get carne asada tacos and quesadillas. He developed a love for the cuisine, and in talking with the vendors, learned about their recipes and style of cooking. But after moving to New York, he found the options for Mexican food lacking. “You’ll have a chef who will put his own spin on it, which is great, but it kind of loses its authenticity of being Mexican street food,” he says of the cuisine characterized by dishes that are quick to make and eat, and relatively inexpensive.
Although Matthew grew up around television — he would regularly attend tapings of his dad’s popular quiz show — he wasn’t attracted to Hollywood.
Speaking to the New York Post in 2016, he said: “I’m much more like my mom,” Trebek says of Currivan, who has a background in real estate. “My mom and I are much more reserved and shy, and my dad and my sister are a little more outgoing and [want] to be the entertainment people.”
