Hemlata and Chancellor Khosla at Ventanas Ribbon Cutting ceremony


The new Ventanas, located at Eleanor Roosevelt College, opened Fall Quarter 2023 with a full-service coffee house, upgraded indoor and outdoor seating areas, and a new connection to Seventh College to the north. Along with Indian cuisine, the new Ventanas features menu items from Africa, the Caribbean, parts of South America and the American South. To develop the menu, the Dining team worked with the Black Resource Center leadership, UC San Diego students, Celebrity Chefs Kenny Gilbert, Diana Tandia, and Nelson German, as well as Executive Chef and professional consultant Bhaskar Raghav.

Chef Kenny Gilbert is a Caribbean food expert famous for Silkie's Chicken and Champagne Bar and House of Birds + Drop Biscuits in Florida. He is also the author of "Southern Cooking: Global Flavors". Fun fact: Chef Kenny was a contestant on Top Chef Season 7.

Diana Tandia is chef and owner of Berber Street Food in New York, New York. She is originally from Mauritania in northwest Africa, where she was raised in a Berber family with Senegalese roots. Her food is focused on “Afro-Fusion” dishes from Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, and more.

Nelson German is the Executive Chef/Owner of alaMar Kitchen & Bar and Sobre Mesa in Oakland, CA. His menu tells the stories of the African and Caribbean diasporas through cultural foodways -- contemporary techniques combined with his favorite family dishes from his mother and grandmother’s recipe books.

Chef Bhaskar Raghav was born in New Delhi and started his cooking career for the Tah Group and Sheraton Group hotels. He is currently the Business Development Manager with Cuisine Solutions, a premium food company that specializes in sous vide cooking and meal preparation. His specialties are Indian, French, Mediterranean and Cajun cuisines, and he is excited to bring authentic flavors to the menu at Ventanas.
