From Sonora: "Whether he’s in the kitchen, penning his cookbooks—or working the stove in one of his numerous establishments, Palomino is the consummate creator, and astute businessman. Keenly aware of flavors people love and crAve., Colombian-born Chef Palomino draws from his childhood in Bogotá, his younger years in New York City alongside such culinary legends as Larry Forgione and Charlie Palmer, as well as his time in France, with Michel Guèrard in Eugènie-les-Bains. Today his many restaurants, his menus and his success represent the culmination of his artistry and business savvy; he knows food, and he knows how people relish their dining experiences.
These days, in between scribing cookbooks (he’s got five published to date: Bistro Latino, Viva la Vida, Nueva Salsa, Fiesta Latina and Latin Grill!) and teaching cooking classes, Chef Rafael Palomino is an active participant in all of his restaurants, which currently span three states and many miles. In addition to Mesa Modern Mexican in Easton, Palomino boasts ownership of two more in PA (Pacífico in Center Valley, andTapas on Main in Bethlehem), two in Connecticut (Pacífico in New Haven, and Bistro Latino in Greenwich), two more in New York (Sonora in Port Chester, and Palomino in Larchmont), and more in the works."
Open any of his cookbooks, or enter any of his establishments, and you’ll soon see and taste the successful combination of Palomino-style ingredients.
