Texas native Rene Ortiz spent the past two decades traveling the world cultivating his international culinary skills and developing his taste for exotic flavors. Most recently, he opened and served as Executive Chef at New York’s wildly popular La Esquina. As Executive Chef of La Condesa, Rene has created an inspired menu of contemporary Mexican cuisine with traditional regional influences. Dishes range from street food favorites to sophisticated specialties. Drawing on the bold flavors and vibrant colors of Mexico City, Chef Rene uses only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.
La Condesa is a globally-inspired, locally-minded modern Mexican restaurant in the heart of downtown Austin. They are a ‘green’ restaurant that practices recycling, composting and gardening and are 90% waste-free. The restaurant also has strong working relationships with local and regional farms, as well as several partnerships with like minded socially conscious organizations. La Condesa strives to provide our guests with the most wholesome and freshest ingredients that we can because it is both sustainable, and we believe, it simply tastes better.
