Yun Fuentes

After cutting his teeth on his home turf of Puerto Rico, where he cooked in kitchens throughout Old San Juan, Fuentes moved to New York City.

Learning under chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Formerly the chef de cuisine at Jose Garces’ Tinto and Village Whiskey, Fuentes has found a home at Stephen Starr’s long-running Alma de Cuba.

Yun participated in the Food and Fun Festival in Turku in 2016 where he captivated the judges palate and took home the second place award.
