ABOUT THE CHEFS & RESTAURANTS


ANDRE GUERRERO, THE OINKSTER

In the world of food, there is always something new and delicious to be discovered. Let’s go, find it, and bring it to the table! This go-getter attitude has been chef Andre Guerrero’s motto ever since he opened the award-winning MAX in Sherman Oaks eight years ago. And instead of resting on the laurels he received for bringing the distinct aromas and flavors of Asian cooking to the neighborhood, the Philippine-born chef always keeps his eyes open for the next delectable thing.

Only 18 months after the launch of MAX, his hungry mind drove him to sink his teeth into a completely different concept. The result: Señor Fred, an equally successful Mexican-themed eatery that helped cement upscale ethnic cuisine as one of Los Angeles’ dining trends in 2004. After selling the second restaurant to his business partner five years ago, chef Andre’s plate and palate were clear for another journey into new culinary territory.

So in 2006 he decided to take on classic American fare – and add his own twist. The Oinkster, his new fast-casual Eagle Rock eatery, now tempts Angelenos with what he dubs ‘slow fast food’: House-cured pastrami, slow roasted pork, rotisserie chicken and freshly-ground Angus beef burgers, along with Belgian fries and home-made ketchups and dressings.

JOHNERIC CONCORDIA, THE PARK’S FINEST & THUNDERBOLT LA

Johneric Concordia is the Chef and Co-Founder of The Park’s Finest, a Los Angeles-based restaurant in Echo Park, Historic Filipinotown. In his youth, he participated in local non-profit programs and projects designed to prevent at-risk behavior and substance abuse and later engaged in various intergenerational community organizing efforts. With the assistance of SIPA and the Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program, he started The Park’s Finest, a catering company, with local friends/family.

The continued growing support of family and community allowed for the opening of The Park's Finest brick and mortar in 2012. A year later, the restaurant was featured on the “L.A. Eats” episode of The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. In 2017, Johneric hosted episodes of the Discovery Channel Asia’s “Prison Food”, a series that takes a chef into some of the world’s most notorious prisons to cook a meal behind bars, accompanied by volunteer kitchen staff who are inmates themselves. Since 2019, through a collaborative partnership, he serves as the Executive Chef of Thunderbolt, a new neighborhood restaurant offering Southern-inspired food and thoughtfully-crafted cocktails on Temple Street.

GREGORY BERBER, LA LUZ DEL DIA

La Luz del Dia is a cafeteria-style restaurant serving Michoacan Mexican food in the historic Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. The restaurant was officially established at this location in 1959 but the story begins much earlier.

Before there was the La Luz del Dia restaurant, there was a La Luz del Dia grocery store, established in 1915 just a few blocks down on Main Street where the 101 freeway is today. It relocated to several places along Main Street including right next to the Plaza Church, North Spring Street, and in 1966 the Sepulveda House. Since 1941, the grocery store, then owned by Jack Berber, was a supplier to Christine Sterling, the founder of Olvera Street, when she lived in the historic Avila Adobe. Because of this long relationship, Ms Sterling always insisted that Jack Berber should open a business directly on Olvera Street. On September 16, 1959 this opportunity turned into a reality and Jack along with his cousin Pancho Cazares opened La Luz del Dia Restaurant.

La Luz del Dia is currently owned by Gregory Berber, son of Henry Berber, and grandson of Jack Berber, one of the co-founders. Pancho's son Frank has also been working at the restaurant for many years.
