Tell us about yourself
I came to PC in the early 1990’s to train to be a General Manager for a major restaurant chain in California and quickly fell in love with Main Street. I used to visit very frequently and eventually ended up moving here. Once in Utah, my career in the restaurant industry progressed as I managed multiple accounts in Park City for a local food distributor; in 2009 I found out the location where Reyes Adobe is presently located was going to be available. My wife, Genevieve Candelaria, a Utah native, and I decided to open our own restaurant after 30 years managing restaurants for other corporations.
We like to spend time at any lake Utah has to offer; I miss the ocean like there is no tomorrow and going to concerts, especially the ones in Deer Valley.
Why Historic Park City?
Park City is the perfect destination, it feels European but yet so American with close to perfect weather during summer, breathtaking views during spring and fall, and amazing night life during winter. In my mind, I like to entertain the idea that this is what a Main Street culture is all about.
Favorite Historic Park City moment?
Running an hour and a half wait to be seated for dinner at our humble restaurant during Sundance and finding out there are famous movie actors dining among us.
