Sake guru Steven Salazar is leaving his position of beverage director and assistant general manager at Kata Robata to join the team at Anvil. He told the Houston Press' Kaitlin Steinberg that it was simply time to move on:
I feel I have accomplished so much at Kata Robata. I was allowed to rework the entire beverage program, and I feel like I have made a difference and learned so much. I've made the really hard decision to get out of my comfort zone, humble myself and keep learning and improving myself. I have always admired Bobby Heugel and Alba Huerta, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work at their flagship bar.
Salazar recently returned from a trip to Japan, where he earned his Advanced Sake Professional Certification. He's been at Kata Robata for the last two years.
