Luis Nieto, Chef
206 West St.
We are serving a Philly Cheese Steak on pretzel bread because we wanted to offer something new, similar to our new lunch menu Philly Cheese Steak, and give the Taste of Tribeca a new, fun dish from The Palm.
I’m a personal lover of Kamen and Trefethen, which go great with this type of meat dish.
Who taught you to cook?
I learned from my father who is a chef as well, I remember the first French onion soup we made together, I was probably 10.
Favorite food growing up?
We had these corn biscuits that were dipped in hot chocolate called “bizcochos,” they were to die for!
A tasting spoon, new chefs should focus on and always taste what their cooks are putting in front of them.
Under ordering and understaffing.
Slicing off my finger nail on a cook-off event right after 9/11.
I would ask my mom to cook me her rice and chicken stew served with the fresh fruit shakes she used to do for us growing up.
