DANIEL DEL PRADO

Chef Daniel del Prado was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to parents of Spanish and southern Italian descent.  His exposure to the culinary industry began at a very young age.

After moving to the United States in his early 20s, del Prado began his culinary career in Colorado—cooking at night and snowboarding during the day. He then moved to Minneapolis where he had the opportunity to work in some of the finest kitchens in town, including La Belle Vie and Solera. In 2009 he teamed up with his mentor, Isaac Becker, to open Bar La Grassa. After a very successful year at Bar La Grassa, del Prado worked in Portland, Oregon, and broadened his experience in high-caliber European kitchens. Upon his return to Minneapolis, he again partnered with Becker as the executive chef of Burch Steak and Pizza Bar, which opened in Uptown in 2013.
