Local chef works his magic at Bolingbrook's Mago Grill and Cantina
BOLINGBROOK – Growing up, Juan Luis Gonzalez learned to cook authentic Latin cuisine working aside his mother and grandmother, the owners of a small, bustling Mexico City cafe.
Today, the 39-year-old Woodridge resident is the one educating aspiring chefs and feeding the suburban residents who flock to one of his three Mago Grill and Cantina restaurants.
July marks the two-year anniversary of the Mago location at the Promenade Bolingbrook, and in spite of Gonzalez's and co-owner Ric Munoz's recent successes – opening three restaurants in as many years, appearing in countless television and radio programs, receiving several culinary awards and accolades – the head chef often shies away from the limelight, instead flexing his creative cooking muscles in the kitchen.
