Marketing / Owner

Not only a BIG dreamer but a BIG dream achiever. Aseret is true Sinaloense and 1st in her family to Graduate college (Berkeley/UCLA). A leader in her field she never hesitates to push the envelope or speak her truth, and we couldn't be happier that she's our marketing guru.

We strive to inspire a new culture in the culinary industry. Sourcing locally, cooking from the heart, mentoring one another, and building a community through food.


Great Food, Real Talk, No Bullshit

Chef Owner

From Lawrence to LT, to EL Tigre, and finally being dubbed Chef Tiger, LT is a former professional athlete and up & coming chef. Cherishing his time working for world renowned chefs in some of the top kitchens in the valley he brings skill and passion to his very own concept. Now he has the freedom to get creative, disrupt the industry and try something off the cuff here at Chílte.

Food is a universal connection to our past, our present and our future. It allows us to immerse ourselves and experience palatable art. We aim to bring unique and inspired food to Phoenix while allowing these dishes to tell the stories of those who experience it.

Starting in a 10x10 pop up tent we have always aimed to disrupt the industry at every level, whether cooking on the street or in a five-star restaurant. As we lay the ground work for our first brick and mortar we are determined to stay focused on the vision of where we are headed but never forget where we came from.
