Johnny Sánchez is collaboration between two old friends who happen to be world-class, James Beard Award-winning chefs, John “Johnny” Besh and Aarón Sánchez.
The pair first met when Aarón began his career in John’s hometown of New Orleans, and their bond grew stronger while competing against each other on Food Network’s Next Iron Chef. The two friends joined forces to open Johnny Sánchez, a spirited taqueria where they express their passions for culinary heritage and high quality, locally-sourced ingredients. In creating Johnny Sánchez, they collaborated on everything from the perfect tacos and tostadas, to the beer, wine, and cocktails, to the décor. The menu takes a contemporary approach to authentic Mexican cuisine and features the big, bold and powerful flavors that Aarón is known for.
