Chef Angelo Sosa
Chef Angelo's passion for food and quality is contagious, making him a household name in a competitive industry. His culinary work has taken him from 3-star kitchens in Europe to the street-food stalls of Southeast Asia. A protégé of Jean-George Vongerichten, Angelo has worked with some of the industry's most renowned restaurateurs, including Alain Ducasse, Stephen Starr and Masaharu Morimoto.
He has been a senior or consulting chef for such diverse restaurants as Jean-Georges, Spice Market, Buddakan, and Morimoto in New York, and Le Louis XV in Monaco. Angelo is familiar to many from his three seasons competing on Top Chef, as well as appearances on numerous other television shows including, HBO Max's Selena + Chef. Angelo was a founding chef and partner in the Michelin-listed Anejo Restaurants in NY. He has written two cookbooks, Flavor Exposed and Healthy Latin Eating, which drew inspiration from his Dominican heritage. In early 2022, Angelo looks forward to opening a new restaurant, named for his Tia Carmen, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix.
