About this Episode

Jose Salazar is a chef and restauranter based in Cincinnati Ohio. Originally based in Queens, he got his start in restaurants around New York, most notably working with Chef Thomas Keller for a four year stint at Per Se and as the Executive Sous-Chef at Bouchon Bakery when it first opened in 2006.

In 2008 he and his wife Anne moved to Cincinnati after receiving an irresistable offer to be the Executive Chef of The historical Cincinnatian Hotel and Palace restaurant, and in December of 2013, they opened Salazar together in Cincinnati’s Over the Rhine neighborhood.

In August of 2015, Jose and Ann opened Mita’s, their second restaurant together, which has earned Jose nominations for “best Chef”Great Lakes from the James Beard foundation in 2016 and 2017 consecutively.
