Chef Lateisha Wilson
Matador Room at The Miami Beach Edition (Miami Beach) (she/her/hers)
Chef Lateisha gravitated toward cooking from a young age and always sensed that she was destined for a professional culinary career. Born in the Bronx and raised in an African American and Cherokee Indian Household, Chef Lateisha was surrounded by different traditions and cooking styles both in and outside her home. Living at the epicenter of diversity and culture, she was able to take on roles in some of the world’s best kitchens, such as Executive Sous Chef of ABC Cocina, Head Chef of Dekalb Market Hall, and Sous Chef of both Barraca and Macondo. Chef Lateisha recently joined The Miami Beach EDITION as the new Chef de Cuisine of Matador Room and Matador Bar. She brings her mother’s flavors and a wealth of multicultural experience.
