VINCENT CONTRERAS EXECUTIVE CHEF
As Executive Chef at Local Bistro, Vincent Contreras is in charge of daily kitchen operations as well as and helping design new seasonal menus. While Vincent’s love for food began in his grandmother’s kitchen, it wasn’t until he worked for Chef Christopher Gross in 1994 and began to see the creative potential of food that he decided to devote his life to the culinary arts. Following that experience, he enrolled in the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and began his career as a chef. Since then, Vincent has collaborated with world-renowned chefs including Luciano Peligrini and Joachim Spichal, both James Beard Winners, as well as Alex Stratta, also a James Beard Winner as well as the recipient of two Michelin Stars. Most recently, he worked at Pinot Brasserie at The Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
