Fresco Mexican is a collaboration between Marco Rojas and Carlos Cervantes. Both started their careers at a young age.
Marco Rojas comes from Guadalajara, Mexico, where he developed his regional style of Mexican cooking in his mother’s kitchen. It was there that he learned how to use the fresh produce, cheese, and meats from the local Mercado.
Marco relocated to New Jersey in the late eighties and expanded his skills of international cuisine working as Executive Chef at The Black Horse Pub in Mendham and The Short Hills Club in Short Hills.
When we started our own restaurant, I knew it had to be special - “I named our restaurant Fresco (fresh) because there really is no other way.”
In 2006, we opened our first Fresco restaurant in Flanders, NJ. In 2010, we moved Fresco Mexican to Chester, NJ. Fresco Mexican is an extension of our tight family backgrounds, where food was always the center of our households. It was a time to nourish each other, reconnect, and create lasting bonds.
