Chef Rodriguez

Executive Chef Angel Rodriguez

First arriving in March of 2014 from Cape Cod, MA, Chef Angel Luis Rodríguez has comfortably immersed himself into Houston’s melting pot of international cultures and local flavors—pun intended. A wandering chef at heart, Angel Luis was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico where he developed admiration for the regional cuisine comprised of influences from the pre-Columbian Taíno natives, Europe, Africa, the United States and neighboring islands.

In 2001, Chef Angel embarked on his culinary journey, which started at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. His professional evolution has included stops in Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont, Vail Cascade Resort & Spa in Vail, Colorado, John’s Island Club and the Gasparilla Resort & Golf Club in Florida and Chatham Bars Inn and Wequassett Resort & Golf Club, both in Cape Cod. His personal hobbies include sailing, fishing and surfing around the Caribbean, backpacking throughout Europe, cross-country trips in the U.S. and travelling throughout Central and South America, particularly Argentina, his wife’s home country.

Chef Angel was named Executive Chef at the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside in December 2016. His mission is to incorporate new and exciting culinary programs and implement local flavors on our menus that are inspired by the sustainability of local and regional products.
