Ross Pangilinan’s culinary journey began upon graduating from the Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena when he traveled to France to work in the two Michelin-starred Les Trois Marches in Versailles. At the age of 21, Patina Restaurant Group made him sous chef at Pinot Provence, which led to Patina’s founder, chef Joachim Splichal, appointing him sous chef at the Michelin-starred flagship Patina at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Pangilinan later left to open the fine-dining Italian restaurant Sinatra at the Encore at Wynn, Las Vegas. He returned to Patina as executive chef at Leatherby's Cafe Rouge at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, where he created innovative Broadway-themed menus for seven years. Since the opening of his first restaurant in 2016 in downtown Santa Ana, Mix Mix Kitchen Bar was named the 2017 Restaurant of the Year by Orange Coast Magazine and has garnered praise from Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, NBC, and Modern Luxury. Today he presents Terrace by Mix Mix, bringing his acclaimed European-Filipino fusion style of small plates to his second restaurant opening at South Coast Plaza.
