Host/Hostess


Description

CHICA by Lorena Garcia will transport guests through Latin America, featuring the robust and vibrant flavors of authentic regional dishes. 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.

CHICA is open Tuesday through Sunday for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

In the late 1960’s film classic Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman’s devil-may-care attitude lands him in a Florida jail for cutting off the heads of parking meters. Outnumbered, Newman is dared by his cellmates to eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour. Fueled by his stubborn instincts and unwillingness to conform, Newman trumps his naysayers and defies all odds – proving that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to.
