About Chef Derek Hernandez
From his first experiences in the restaurant industry as a teenager to his inspired creations at Fleming’s, Chef Derek’s career has been characterized by an unmistakable love of cooking since the very beginning. Having worked every position in the kitchen, Chef Derek’s understanding of the restaurant’s atmosphere is every bit as masterful as his culinary creations. Blending the signature smoked BBQ flavors of Texas with inspiration from culturally diverse cooking styles, Chef Derek’s table is anything but predictable. Recently, his Chef’s Table featured expertly smoked unconventional entrées, including duck, smoked ribs, and bone marrow. Chef Derek’s dishes add variety to our main menu offerings and are true to the spirit of San Antonio, reflecting the unique flavors and personality of the region.
