Our kitchen is led by Nico Sanchez. A Mexico native, he moved to Dallas in 1996 to pursue his goal of becoming a chef.
Before he had dreams of becoming a culinary artist, Sanchez lived in Guanajuato, Mexico with his two sisters and brother. When he was seven years old his father passed away, which left him with a heavy responsibility to his family. Leaving his family to chase his vision was not an easy choice, but he knew he had to persevere in order to accomplish his goals. He also knew that it would take time and much effort to achieve his culinary dreams.
Throughout Sanchez's career he has done everything from working as a carrier traveling Mexico to becoming a chef at one of the many Consilient restaurants, Cuba Libre. Throughout his restaurant career he has had great mentors including Brent Hammer, executive chef at Hibiscus; David McMillan, executive chef at the Screen Door in Dallas; along with Nick Badovinus, chef and restaurateur of Neighborhood Services.
Sanchez not only has a passion for teaching and life, he also has been involved with the charity Fundacion ERA. This foundation is a non-profit organization that collects shoes in the summer and coats in the winter for needy children throughout Mexico.
His future plans include mentoring young professionals in the restaurant industry as he continues to create and explore new recipes. Sharing his culinary talents with the greater Dallas area and beyond are his ongoing passions.
