Hostaria, located in Santa Monica, is home to Executive Chef Germano Minin.
“Many people ask me what is the most famous celebrity I’ve ever met in the restaurant. The answer is bobo… only he doesn’t think he’s famous. I store Christmas decorations under my bed. my favorite thing to do is walk several blocks to the beach and feel the cold sand on my feet. Some people call me biondo (blonde) even if i don’t have blond hair… or any hair for that matter. I used to think i would grow up to be a soccer player back in the days when i would play with all my friends in a field behind the church in my town.”….Germano Minin
