Music fanatic, sound engineer, and all around taste virtuoso, Jesse Torres is one of the most inspired creators in the San Antonio cocktail scene. From playing in a Korean school band, to studying at the Culinary Institute of America, Jesse has explored all of the tangents of flavor and art. With sonic textures, and dissected flavors, Jesse brings his unique blend of military and kitchen training to the Esquire Tavern in SA. The wildly varied projects of life often take things down dark paths and we chat about finding poor business partners when it’s exactly too late. Sipping George T Stagg and relaxing at The Brooklynite, this conversation traverses everywhere.
