A passionate devotee of indigenous ingredients and classic Mexican recipes, Chef Mario Hernandez injects his dishes with culture,
love, and flavor, finished with a casually elegant NYC touch.

Hernandez began his cooking education in his grandmother’s kitchen in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico. He was fascinated by every spice and
element of food preparation and was determined to master it all. He immigrated to New York City with his father at 16, where he began his culinary career, starting as a dishwasher and eventually working his way into the Executive Chef role.

Chef Mario brings decades of expertise in all different styles of food- you’ll feel his Mexican roots alongside his extensive training in Spanish and Asian cuisine. Chef Mario has an impressive roster of restaurants under his belt- notable names such as Black Ant, Ofrenda Cocina Mexicana and Gardenia all thrived under his expert palette. Nowadays, he is the Executive Chef and Partner in Mana Hospitality Group, which has four locations, Chela Park Slope, Chela Tribeca, Bar Crudo and 390 Social.

Chef Mario is a veteran of the NYCWFF, and owns the bragging rights of winning celebrity Chopped against David Burke.
