Chefs Stand Up: Gerardo Gonzalez
A dinner series supporting ACLU’s immigrants’ rights and other critical civil rights work.
GERARDO GONZALEZ, Chef - formerly of Lalito (NYC)
Born and raised in Southern California to a large Mexican American family, Gerardo has lived and worked across the country and abroad, ultimately locating to New York City in 2011 and focusing on a career in the restaurant industry. In 2013, Gerardo opened and created El Rey Coffee and Luncheonette to much critical acclaim and neighborhood approval. In 2016, opened Lalito, his second restaurant in downtown Manhattan, focusing on flavors he grew up with in the border region of San Diego-Tijuana. Having decided to explore food beyond a restaurant setting, Gerardo is currently working on a project in Grand Cayman Island that will lead up to a residency that supports chefs of the region and diaspora with artists, farmers, and non-profit organizations in order to explore culinary arts in a multi disciplinary focus.
