PAST

A native Cuban, Garcia’s family taught him to appreciate the simplicity of ingredients and the power of conviviality centered around the table.  After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Garcia worked alongside Chef Douglas Rodriguez at the inventive Yuca restaurant in Miami. Committed to expanding the reach of Nuevo Latino cuisine, the two chefs opened Patria in New York City in 1994.  Rave reviews, including three stars from The New York Times, followed.
