BIO: Growing up with a Dominican father and an Italian mother, meals were a serious affair. Angelo Sosa graduated from the Culinary Institute of America after he ran the kitchen at the Escoffier Room.
Teaming with Christian Bertrand at the Four-Diamond, Stonehenge Restaurant & Inn, Angelo served as Christian’s sous chef at the opening of Acqua. In 1999, Christian Bertrand referred Angelo Sosa to Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who eventually became his mentor.
Angelo spent two and a half years with Jean-Georges, then left to take an executive sous chef position at TanDa. After being at TanDa for only a year, he left to go back to work for Jean-Georges Vongerichten at the Ocean Club at Dune in the Bahamas. Next, Angelo went to New York to be the executive sous chef at Restaurant Jean Georges for two years and then was asked to open Jean-George’s trend setting Spice Market as executive sous chef.
In 2005, he became the executive chef of Yumcha in the West Village, and showcased his take on modern Chinese cuisine which gained huge acclaim. Later that year, Angelo Sosa began consulting and helped launch restaurants including, restaurant Stephen Starr’s Buddakan, Asian-Mediterranean hot-spot LOFT, Morimoto, Alain Ducasse’s Spoon Food & Wine in Paris and others. He opened his first restaurant, Xie Xie in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City and won a StarChef’s New York’s Rising Star award for Best New Restaurant Concept.
