What do you love most about NYC?

I love how chaotic and diverse this city is, It was love at first sight for me. I believe that every person has their own biological rhythm of life, mine perfectly harmonizes with the rhythm of New York City.

Favorite Meal?

My favorite food is freshly baked bread and a proper steak done on a medium low temperature; Cant choose one over the other.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – I wake up and walk my best friend Carlos, my 3 yo Chipin. We live across the street from DOMINO park, love that place.

10:00 AM - I start planning the day out.

12:00 PM - One of the busiest times of the day, usually dealing with deliveries and food prep, organizing the schedule and task distribution among staff members.

7:00 PM -  show time at CHEESEBOAT. I usually cook.

11:00 PM - This is usually when things slow down, I try to reflect on the day - what’s been done right and what may use some work. This is when I start relaxing..

Favorite Drink?

White dry wine.

Where do you enjoy getting lost in NYC?

I like discovering new bars around the city, that is my way of getting lost - by finding new things.
