Oswaldo Bibiano's eyes and palate opened up when he saw Acapulco as a viable avenue to move beyond his small town roots in the little Mexican town of Guerrero.

We talk about that journey from there to his first interview with David Machado at Pazzo in Portland, and learning new skills fast.  We discuss Autentica and touch on his plans for something new in 2017 where he thinks will be the most exciting area for restaurant growth in the future.

David Machado was one of our favorite guests.  He's helmed Portland's most important restaurants, among them The Heathman and Pazzo.  We talk a bit about those days and why hotel restaurants are his thing, generally speaking.
