Tyler MacNiven hails from Palo Alto, but developed a love for southwest cuisine on family road trips to New Mexico. It's with these memories in mind that this experienced restaurateur decided to open West of Pecos. Longtime colleague, Chef August Schuchman, brings his own upbringing and training to the kitchen at West of Pecos and the result is a truly west-of-the-Pecos-River hearty dining experience, with a lot more comfort and style.
In this episode, the two discuss how scent can enhance a meal, what it's like to see those Yelp reviews, and what they both love about the flavors of southwest cooking.
