Our European-Style Cafe and Bar

  • Garces Trading Company is a full-service bar and restaurant focused on Chef Garces’ own favorite dishes from his travels to cafes throughout Western Europe, with a focus on Italy, Spain and France. Our thoughtful menu of cafe staples is served throughout the day, and our bar offers a wealth of cocktails, wines and beers that pair beautifully with our menu.

About Chef Garces

  • Since opening his first restaurant, Amada, less than a decade ago, Chef Jose Garces has emerged as an enormous talent and one of the nation’s most gifted chefs and restaurateurs. Today, he is the owner and operator of more than a dozen restaurants across the country, plus a thriving event planning division and 40-acre Luna Farm. He is a 2009 winner of the James Beard Foundation’s prestigious “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” award and one of only a few chefs in the country to hold the coveted title of Iron Chef. Chef Garces is also the author of two cookbooks, The Latin Road Home (Lake Isle Press, October 2012), a culinary and cultural tour of Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Cuba and Peru, and his stunning first cookbook, Latin Evolution (Lake Isle Press, Fall 2008).
