Food Fight Series 12: Chef Chris Fernandez of Red Mesa

By October 10, 2018Podcast


Executive Chef Chris Fernandez worked in the best kitchens of Oaxaca, Mexico and learned to cook the nation’s regional dishes and flavors.

When Chef Chris came to St. Petersburg, he joined the Veytias and opened Red Mesa Restaurant. Obviously, it did very well. The city demanded more delicious Mexican food, so they opened Red Mesa Cantina… and Red Mesa Mercado. Now there’s Red Mesa Events gourmet banquets services and DeSanto Bar.

Each concept is a bit different, so how does he manage this empire?

Featured Restaurant: Red Mesa
Featured Wine: Bichi Santa, Rosa del Peru, Tecate Mexico
