“Immigrants are adding to what the South is,” says Jose and Sons chef Oscar Diaz. “There’s this beautiful painting, and we’re adding more beautiful colors. Because it’s not a finished piece.”
When we opened Jose and Sons five years ago, Chef Oscar took on the ever difficult task of marrying together the foodways of two cultures - that of our heritage and the one we now call home. We are elated and incredibly grateful to get to read about our journey and those similar in this thoughtful, deep-diving piece by Gustavo Arellano for @Time Magazine.

We were honored to receive the "Best Fusion" award by the News and Observer! Chef Oscar combines Southern cookery with our Mexican heritage to create something truly from the heart and representative of our upbringing. And in case you missed it, our sister restaurant Cortez received an Honorable Mention for Restaurant of the Year! Read all about it here!
Very kind words from one of the South's most prominent food authorities. "...He loves Raleigh's Jose and Sons for its Mexican-American chefs who are defining Mexican fusion. Serving brisket barbacoa braised in local Crank Arm beer, Jose and Sons gives us a taste of the future of Southern cooking." Read the full story here!
