Last year, he cooked at the SMA Food Festival as well. The pork belly and sausage sandwiches were both crowd favorites. The good news is that you don’t have to wait another year to get one. They will be added to the menu at Buenos Aires Bistro on Wednesday nights.
His Sous-chef, Martin, has more than 13 years of experience working in different kitchens in the US. He’s been with Mariano for almost 2 years now. “He’s very committed and gets me as far as quality of products and service” he said. He also has Carolina who started as a dish washer. Two years ago, an opportunity came up which he offered to her and Caro took it so she’s been trained the way he likes things done. She’s very committed to her work and family which he highly values. She comes to SMA from Comonfort every single day. He really can’t say enough about his entire team, “they are all great people” he says. Every time he calls on them, they are more than ready to step up. He is very grateful for them. “In the end, we are like a family.”
