Luis Mercado

Sous Chef

Born in Toluca Mexico and raised in both Toluca and Miami, Luis joins us from Le Politique Austin via Pao and Zuma Miami. He credits his father and grandmother’s influence for his path into the culinary world and remembers fondly helping in his grandmother’s restaurant since he was seven years old.

Luis feels strongly that, “creativity is a resource not a privilege,” and is excited to be part of the Uchi Houston team.

Hiking with his wife and dog and playing squash are his favorite pastimes.
