Talent

  • Chef Gabriel Munoz Becerra is Bar Solita’s new, head chef, located here, in Richmond, Virginia.  With almost 2 decades of experience in the food and beverage industry, he adds great value to RVA Hospitality’s restaurant group.

    Gabe hails from Guadalajara, Mexico and relocated to Pennsylvania in 2001.  There, he was able to gain knowledge of the kitchen working under two esteemed chefs from Italy and Canada at Maggiano’s Little Italy.  Also during his time there, he worked with local wineries and breweries, hosting multiple dinners.

    In addition to training under brilliant chefs, Gabe attributes most of his cooking skills to simply reading and studying several cook books.

    In 2016, Gabe took his expertise and talents to Richmond, Virginia where he worked as head chef for Kona Grill until Spring 2019.  

    Since joining Bar Solita, Gabe has made such extraordinary and innovative changes to our menus.  By means of his Latino influences, he’s completely transformed our Mediterranean style into true vacation cuisine.

    When Gabe is not gracing Bar Solita’s kitchen with his presence, he enjoys hosting children’s cooking classes, and acting as a guinea pig for his Esthetician girlfriend.
