My father used to own breweries in Venezuela. It had always been my dream to open a Latin gastro pub serving local craft beer. I’ve always had a deep love for food, but I didn’t have prior restaurant experience so I hired a good chef to design the menu. I was always watching him – learning everything I could from him. Over the first few months he helped me develop my skills and showed me how to properly run a kitchen. Our food was good, – modern. But somehow the market kept telling me to go back to simpler food and my mother’s recipes. I unfortunately had to let the chef go, but I hold on to what he taught me. Today I still enjoy coming out to greet each guest, although most of my time is spent in the back with my team testing out new things.”
