Chef Richard Bernaola

When Richard was only 15 years old, he discovered his passion for cooking while working in a Japanese restaurant. He was delighted by the traditional Japanese cuisine since a young age.

In 2005, he started working as a Sushi cook in Café Sambal at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami Florida. While working at the Mandarin Hotel, he studied culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu. Since then, Richard continued to move up the ranks as a Chef and had the opportunity to travel to Peru, his native homeland, to train with the best Peruvian Chefs around. 

In 2019, Richard accepted a Sushi Chef position at Watr Rooftop at the 1Hotel South Beach. He has been able to apply his experience in the Nikkei cuisine to make new dishes and specials that guests have enjoyed. In 2022, Richard was promoted to Chef de Cuisine at Watr Rooftop. He is very excited with this opportunity and is delighted to continue enrapturing guests with an amazing culinary experience.
