Chef Jose Sosa brings passion and years of expertise to the kitchen. His fascination with nature is driven from a small town and a family farm where he discovered connections between kinship and cooking. After moving to Chicago, he rose through the ranks in the city’s most exceptional restaurants, most notably, Ambria and Boka. Since 2008, Sosa has been with Gibsons Restaurant Group where he started his tenure as a sous chef at Luxbar. After two years, he became the Executive Chef of Hugo’s Frog Bar and Fish House and now, he has taken the Executive Chef position at Gibsons Restaurant Group’s newest restaurant, Gibsons Italia.
