CULINARY DIRECTOR / SISTO PEREZ JR
Sisto Perez, the culinary director of Tc4 & Co, brings to the table a strong background in steakhouse cuisine. He has worked at the likes of Eddie V’s and Perry’s where he attributes his learned skill of utilizing each piece of meat without waste. Sisto has also trained under renowned chefs such as Abacus Jasper, Aaron Staudenmaier and Keith House.
Sisto’s greatest influence however, was his grandmother. From a young age, she taught him the importance of an organized kitchen and how to efficiently prep and prepare a full course meal.
