NoMad Mixologist Talks Tequila

Wednesday August 1, 2012

Leo Robitschek is the mixologist at Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad

NBC Latino has a great feature about Eleven Madison Park / NoMad Hotel mixologist Leo Robitschek. Robitschek is a native of Caracas, Venezuela and fell in love with the restaurant world while working as a bartender to pay his way through pre-med requirements.

Robitschek states that “the hospitality of the bar is very similar to the social aspect of medicine. You get to interact with someone, and then you receive the immediate satisfaction of guiding someone’s experience.”

He previously worked as Sushi Samba before heading to Eleven Madison Park. Robitschek spoke about Tequila in honor of National Tequila Day. He said “Creating a wonderful tequila cocktail is all about being rooted in the classics.”
