The United States has long offered a promise of opportunity and safety to arriving immigrants - The American Dream. However, currently facing a time of deep political, social, and cultural divide, immigration has become a divisive issue.
Two countries, two restaurants, one vision. At Gabriela Cámara's acclaimed Contramar in Mexico City, the welcoming, uniformed waiters are as beloved by diners as the menu featuring fresh, local seafood caught within 24 hours. The entire staff sees themselves as part of an extended family. Meanwhile at Cala in San Francisco, Cámara hires staff from different backgrounds and cultures, including ex-felons and ex-addicts, who view the work as an important opportunity to grow as individuals. A Tale of Two Kitchens explores the ways in which a restaurant can serve as a place of both dignity and community.Written by
My favorite restaurant on screen. Love to see the ownership of employees, I live in same neighborhood and watching it is like being there, opening every day with big enthusiasm and the service is perfect. Mao and the team are the best!!!
Is very human what Gabriela Camara does for society in Mexico City and San Francisco.
