Tito Vargas promoted at Bazaar by José Andrés in Miami Beach

Tito Vargas’ 14 years of experience with chef Jose Andres’ ThinkFoodGroup in Washington, D.C., and nearly two years as part of the opening team at The Bazaar at the SLS Hotel South Beach have paid off.

The former senior sous chef has been promoted to chef de cuisine.

Vargas, a Puerto Rico native, says he is excited to continue incorporating Miami’s regional Latin flavors into Andrés’ signature modern Spanish cuisine.
