Head Chef Gabe Garcia of Tierra Sur

Chef Gabe Garcia

“For me, cooking is an expression of the relationship that I have with the growers, with my team and my kitchen, and with the people who enjoy our food.”

“I want to honor all of the hard work that it takes to grow and produce these ingredients; I want to reflect that care and dedication in the effort that my team and I put into each dish. Our guests have chosen our dining room to make special memories, and in each bite, we want to capture the honor that it brings us. It is a hand-to-hand relationship –– from the farmer’s hands, to mine, to yours. It puts emotion into the food and a passion that our guests can taste.”

– Gabe Garcia, Head Chef
