Moises Galarza began with Gabriela's Restaurant and Tequila Bar as a server back in 2000. Mr. Galarza quickly separated himself as a natural leader through his in depth knowledge of restaurant operations coupled with a long history in hospitality. He is a Tequila aficionado, master mixologist, and is our master food taster as he reflects back to his childhood home in Mexico City. Overseeing Gabriela's Restaurant, Gabriela's Taqueria and other new projects, Mr Galarza keeps our party rolling!

Always willing to go the extra mile, Mr. Ortega's dedication and focus on what matters makes him a natural leader. He brings the spirit of celebration to every table!
