Chef Tito arrived in the U.S. from Mexico at the tender age of 17 and began working in kitchens the moment he arrived. Working as a dishwasher, he would volunteer to help the line cooks so he could soak up as much culinary knowledge as possible. He found himself lucky to be in the company of renowned chefs such as Tod English, Robert Kincaid, and Lydia Shire. It was Lydia and Chef Mario Capone who gave Tito the opportunity to try his hand as a line cook, and quickly worked his way up to sous chef, while working at Scampo and eventually Towne Stove & Spirits. In 2014, he joined Mario to open The Bancroft. When he is in his own kitchen, he loves making pasta for his fiancé and during football season, Tito cheers for his beloved New England Patriots. He feels fortunate to live near most of his family and enjoys gardening with his dad and creating dishes using ingredients from their harvests.
