Bartender


Description

Celebrating a rich blend of native ingredients and techniques that are forever weaved into our American history and palate -- from Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and more – CHICA will pay homage to each culinary tradition all in one dynamic environment. From the wood-fire grill to the traditional plancha and rotisserie for the signature Meyer Lemon Chicken, a combination of family traditions and passions will unite guests around the table and deliver a legacy of culinary delights. The atmosphere will be musically charged with Latin beats while a lively bar scene will feature cocktails and fine spirits from a regionally inspired curated beverage program, as well as a wine inventory that emphasizes historical ties to old-world wines.
