Born in Mexico City, Richard Sandoval grew up surrounded by Mexican culture and food. His father, a successful restaurateur, instilled in him a passion for the cuisine of his heritage and the art of hospitality.

After living in California, where Sandoval learned to appreciate the ingredients indigenous to the area, he enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America. Upon graduation, Sandoval returned to his father’s kitchens, immersing himself in the cuisine of his homeland.

Back in the United States, his first restaurant Maya enabled Sandoval to introduce New Yorkers to the exciting, bold and flavorful foods that have become known as Modern Mexican. Chef Sandoval now boasts thirteen restaurants that span the globe including Tamayo in Denver, Pampano in New York, Mexico City and Acapulco, LA Sandia in Denver and Virginia and Maya in New York, San Francisco and Dubai.

By redefining this historic cuisine, he has become a leader in the upscale Latin culinary movement. Modern Mexican Cuisine is now recognized as one of the great culinary experiences, sentiments once reserved for French, Italian or Japanese food.
