We recently stopped by one of east Charlotte’s newest restaurants, The Chef, at 6023 Albemarle Road. The Chef is the latest enterprise of Roberto Mendoza, the award-winning executive chef from Queens University of Charlotte and formerly of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Open since Mother’s Day 2015, the staff were extremely friendly especially our server Mariella from Uruguay. We found the menu varied and unusual; watching with interest as plates of food came out of the kitchen. Our own meal was delicious!
Chef Roberto Mendoza was very gracious and chatted with us and allowed this photograph! He’s been able to meet and cook for so many celebrities we are certainly lucky he chose east Charlotte to open his restaurant.
