Latino chef adds flavor to new restaurant

Chef Alex Garcia Brings Classic and Nuevo Latino Cuisine to L.A. Hotspot
Jeremy Nisen--Online Editor, Jan. 30, 2009

For a chef, opening a restaurant is always challenging. But Chef Alex Garcia had some interesting things to take into consideration for Boca that most other restaurants do not. Namely, the noise.

Boca is a new restaurant that is part of the recently reopened, popular Los Angeles music spot The Conga Room, both at the L.A. Live plaza. We spoke with The Conga Room's founding partner Brad Gluckstein shortly after the venue's star-studded grand opening. A little more than a month later, we caught up with Garcia to discuss the culinary component of the venture.

Garcia should be comfortable hosting star-studded affairs, since he's very well-known himself. He caught the culinary world's attention with restaurant ventures such as Yucca in Miami, and Patria and Calle Ocho in New York. Then he became a star on the small screen with his Food Network show, Melting Pot, and a bookstore fixture with "In a Cuban Kitchen." CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
