meets French bistro fair.

RAFAEL VENCIO

Born and raised in the Philippines, Rafael immigrated to the U.S. when he was 19. His long-time passion for food has driven his career and involvement in the restaurant industry, with most of his local experience at Legume Bistro. Rafael is currently opening his own restaurant, AUBERGINE BISTRO in Pittsburgh’s new restaurant incubator – Smallman Galley. He trained under two executive chefs and taught himself contemporary French cuisine; later focusing on American Food History. His background in the food industry has exposed him to all aspects of running daily operations in a restaurant and building relationships with local farmers and community.
