Chef Carlos Ortiz

HarborChase of Evergreen Walk

Chef Carlos started in the kitchen at an early age in his parent’s restaurant in his hometown of Veracruz, Mexico. After spending a few years exploring different career paths in computer engineering and biochemistry, he returned to his first passion – cooking.

After graduating from culinary school, he moved with his family to Cancun, Mexico, to work for AAA Four Diamond hotels J.W. Marriot and Secrets the Vine, where he got his initial training in fine dining. After a few years in Cancun, Carlos received an offer to become the Chef at a Mexican restaurant in Washington D.C., where he lived for almost ten years. Carlos took the helm of various Italian and Asian restaurants during his latest assignment at the Rosewood Washington, D.C., where he had the honor of cooking for a few celebrities and politicians.

During the COVID pandemic, Carlos found his true calling when he secured a job at Virginia’s HarborChase community, where he fell in love with serving older adults and was chosen to open HarborChase’s first Connecticut community. We are very excited to have Chef Carlos at HarborChase of Evergreen Walk, where you will taste his wide range of culinary expertise and careful attention to detail!
