Meet the Guest Chefs
Chef Karina Garcia, Cocina Consuelo
Bio: After moving from the Dominican Republic to New York City, Karina was exposed to countless cultures which made her realize the many similarities that those cultures shared. Being Afro Caribeña gave her a purpose to seek out those similarities when approaching Mexican food. Before the pandemic hit, Karina had just started a new job after a year at Eleven Madison Park while her husband Lalo was working at Cosme. Like so many others in the industry, they were furloughed from their jobs. They sought a way to unlock their creativity and continue sharing their passion for food. A few days later, Karina made her first Birria (a popular Mexican dish from Jalisco) that took over 15 hours to cook. Lalo was floored, it tasted like home and soon after Cocina Consuelo was born. Their relaxed in-home dining, pop up, take-out, and delivery venture began in late June 2020 amongst friends and family. Within weeks, they began quickly selling out of everything and have since added more dishes such as the ‘Chiles Rellenos con Atún’, a specialty of Lalo’s grandmother, and vegan options like the ‘Tacos de Fajitas Veganas to their menus.’ Coming from high-end restaurants, they wanted to create food that was simple and authentic.
