At the age of 37, Rodriguez finds himself continuing to build his legacy as a chef while sharing his expertise with others who are searching for culinary perfection through TRG. In his early 20s, the selftaught foodie established himself as an accomplished executive chef with his own distinct culinary style.
Destined for a professional life in the kitchen, Rodriguez sought out opportunities to learn from the best in the business. With valuable training under the aegis of some of South Florida’s top toques, among them Norman Van Aken (Norman’s, Mundo) and Angel Palacios (La Broche), Rodriguez quickly progressed up the culinary ladder, mastering both cooking and management skills and exposing himself to a multitude of culinary styles. One of the most important lessons during this invaluable training was an appreciation for fine, quality ingredients – the freshest seafood, locally sourced meats, cheeses and local produce. The quest for these ingredients has become a cornerstone of Rodriguez’s culinary style.
Rodriguez served as executive chef and F&B director at 1 Bleu, the signature restaurant of The Regent Bal Harbour. Prior to that, Rodriguez tackled the challenge of re-inventing Café Sambal at the AAA Five Diamond and Mobil Four Star rated Mandarin Oriental in Miami, where he served as executive chef from 2005 to 2007. From 2001 to 2005, rounding out his distinguished resume, are positions as executive chef at Norman’s, Mundo in Coral Gables and executive sous chef under Angel Palacios at the now defunct but critically acclaimed, La Broche Miami.
