Meet The Chef
Chef Juan Zaragoza
For the past twenty years, Chef Juan Zaragoza has been cooking up creative and authentic homestyle dishes in the Bay Area. Born in Mexico, he found his culinary passion at a young age, learning to cook local foods alongside his grandmother while finding inspiration in his 10 siblings and a family full of chefs. Juan started his career as a prep cook for a hotel restaurant where he honed his skills catering large banquets. He was promoted to sous chef and worked with a number of multicultural chefs, learning about a wide range of cuisines. Since landing at the Courtyard Long Bar & Bistro, Chef Juan has gained fame within the Los Altos community for his casual, homestyle cooking. Each dish is exquisitely prepared using fresh herbs and local ingredients and our guests enjoy it all at reasonable prices.
