Years of Participation

2018-2020, 2023

Alberto is del sur (from the south), the deeper south! Born in Cali, Colombia, Alberto began his culinary career at the early age of eighteen while living in Costa Rica. Then in 2001, he moved to Miami where he worked in the hospitality industry for a few years. Still drawn to the culinary world, he decided to pursue his passion and attend Le Cordon Bleu. Here is where he met his now business partner, Hernan Stutzer.
After graduation, he continued working in south Floridan restaurants quickly achieving Executive Chef status. Through exposure of the complex food scene in Miami, he fell in love with Patagonian cuisine. He teamed up with Hernan to open Del Sur Miami at the age of thirty. After a couple of years they decided to expand the brand to a different region and opened Del Sur in Georgia.

Opened in August, 2014, Del Sur has become a refreshing staple in Saint Simons Island. Taking pride in serving true to culture, home made food is at the at the forefront of their restaurant.
