Born into a family of Mexican restaurateurs, Béatriz grew up in kitchens owned by her parents. She arrived in France when she was 18, joining the Paul Bocuse Institute in 1999. She immersed herself in French culture and language, crossing paths with Matthew Marcant, who she married and works alongside today.
Thanks to her training and hard work, Béatriz took her first steps in the restaurant industry in 2000. This began at La Belle Otero, now the Carlton, in Cannes, before she joined the team of the famous Lyonnais chef, Pierre Orsi. Back in her homeland, she helped her parents open their third restaurant. But eager for discovery and adventure, she decided to return to Italy for a year. In 2002, she returned to Lucas Carton in Paris, quickly climbing the ladder before becoming Deputy Head of La Grande Cascade.
Passionate and enterprising, in 2011 Béatriz opened her own restaurant, NEVA CUISINE, with her husband. The modern, delicious menu was a success, pushing the couple to open a second establishment, CORETTA. Located in Paris’ 17th arrondissement, this neobistrot offers gourmet dishes inspired by traditional French cuisine that has been personalised by Béatriz’s touch of acidity and sweet-salty flavours. At the end of 2017, Béatriz also took on the kitchen of a large-scale project, the 116-seat Le Rive Droite in the 16th arrondissement.
