DESTINO focuses on modern Latin cusine with a contemporary twist. With personal roots from Peru, executive chef/owner, James Schenk has been on the forefront of gastronomical trends, making DESTINO a staple of Latin American restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"DESTINO was inspired by the Nuevo Cafe Barbieri, in Madrid. This cafe was my living room-a haven of memories, entertainment, and really good cafe con leche. I wanted to continue this memory and offer a similar dinning experience in my hometown, San Francisco. DESTINO began as a dream and is now a reality. We will always serve as a vehicle; a place where people can dine, enjoy, and relish in the joy of life."
