Andrew Santana is now the co-executive chef of Campfire.

After 18 months at The Pearl Hotel, chef Andrew Santana has returned home to Campfire — recently awarded Bib Gourmand status from California’s 2019 Michelin Guide — as its co-executive chef alongside longtime friend Andrew Bachelier (executive chef at sister restaurant, Jeune et Jolie).

The California native is charged with curating the menu in a whole new direction, as well as executing the restaurant’s vision of sustainability and relationships with local farms.

Santana said he looks forward to serving as both a chef and leader, providing knowledge and guidance to a new flock of budding culinary leaders.
