TONIGHT'S GUEST CHEF:
Apr. 15 vs. New York Islanders (Game 2)
Santiago Gomez Executive Chef of Cantina La Viente in Miami



Cantina La Veinte’s Executive Chef, Santiago Gomez (33) is a talented young toque who offers a playful, yet sophisticated approach to traditional Mexican cuisine. His dishes reflect his passion for taking the rich offerings of Mexico’s agriculture and transforming them into contemporary masterpieces. Born in Mexico City, Gomez’s interest for cooking was sparked while he worked as a deliveryman for a local seafood distributor and often observed chefs at work. Their focus and passion inspired him to go to culinary school and in 2007 he graduated from the city’s top culinary academy – Centro Culinario Ambrosia. Gomez confesses he has always had an affinity for higher education and following graduation, continued his studies in Barcelona, Spain at the renowned culinary and hospitality school, Hofmann. Gomez graduated, after that a friend encouraged him to join him and see what Miami had to offer; and an opportunity to work for the fast-expanding NOBU brand seemed opportunity enough. Although he spent just one year in South Florida working for NOBU, before returning to home to open NOBU Mexico City, he recounts “Miami life” memories of serving Lenny Kravitz and partaking in extravagant Dom Perignon truffle dinners.

Gomez was eventually promoted to Execuitve Chef where he would open Cantina La Numero 20 from scratch designing the menu and kitchen, which today is one of the Group’s first internationally expanded concepts. When it’s initial Mexico City concept opened, it was so popular that after just 18 months it started a multi-city expansion eventually opening three additional concepts in Polanco, El Angel and Santa Fe. Before opening Cantina La Veinte in Miami in July 2014, Gomez made a stage at DANIEL by renowned chef Daniel Boulud. He set out to “refresh” his kitchen techniques, but notes that what he found most valuable was learning the precision and technique behind the actual operation of a Michelin-starred kitchen. When arriving to Miami in early 2014, Gomez was naturally filled with culinary creativity, but used his experience at Daniel to aid in the actual kitchen design, which he believes is a huge help in the restaurant ability to executing timely service to their very frequently packed-house of diners.

While rising his way up into the Miami food scene, Chef Gomez has been invited to participate in some of the most important gastronomic events in the city such as South Beach Wine & Food Festival 2015 and 2016, Battle of the Chefs , March of Dimes, Dinner Lab and as a Chef host for American Airlines Arena. He has also been named by international brands as their spokesperson and local ambassador for special projects and récipe developer for Barilla, Tabasco, Don Julio and Florida Dairy Council.
