The Team

Richard Sandoval


During the past 18 years, Richard's career as a chef-restaurateur has evolved to encompass being a culinary consultant, television personality, cookbook author and brand ambassador. RS Hospitality is now a leading restaurant group with over 45 restaurants around the world. Richard combines authentic Latin ingredients with international flavors and inventive techniques. His methods create new and unexpected cuisines such as modern and coastal Mexican, Latin-Asian, Peruvian and Pan-Latin.

Gerardo "Gerry" Lopez

Restaurant Chef

Born in Mexico City, Gerry's childhood was filled with adventures into the city's pocket neighborhoods, where he enthusiastically sampled the comida corrida available at various hole-in the-wall restaurants. Such early experiences eventually led to culinary school, followed by three years traveling the world aboard a luxury cruise line, a role that added depth and international influences to his signature Latin cuisine. His wanderlust brought him to Four Seasons Hotel Austin in 2013, and he was promoted to restaurant chef – in charge of the day-to-day kitchen operations for Ciclo – in 2021.

Amanda Pallagi-Naim

Executive Pastry Chef

Growing up cooking alongside her grandma in rural Texas, Amanda’s natural craftiness and prowess in the kitchen turned into a full-fledged business in high school. Despite this early success and subsequent roles in restaurants, Amanda didn’t consider culinary school seriously until 2008 when she joined Four Seasons Hotel Austin as a hostess in the restaurant. Drawn inexorably to the pastry shop, she was taken under the wing of the executive pastry chef who motivated her to seek out professional training. Over the next five years, Amanda took on increasing levels of responsibility before her promotion to the top pastry position in late 2015.
