Fresh from his former post as executive chef at the private Lakeland Yacht & Country Club, Marcos Fernandez has now launched a new restaurant of his own.
Fernandez began his career when he was 19. He attended the Art Institute of Colorado’s culinary program in Denver and worked at La Mar in Lima, an award-winning restaurant specializing in ceviche, the Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group in Denver and spent five years with the Maggiano’s Little Italy group.
Fernandez, 37, said his menu reflects his Cuban heritage, as well as his culinary experience.
During his four years at Lakeland Yacht Club, Fernandez introduced diners to his artistic leanings, with appetizers such as torchon of foie gras, and main dishes such as pan-grilled halibut in a Champagne beet broth and mint buerre blanc.
