frank harris

  • executive chef
  • born in kerrville and raised in canyon lake, from an early age frank liked cooking for his family and loved ones. when he could help with dinner or even just cook for himself it made him feel useful. frank always had a passion for cooking but never knew where it would take him. the structure and discipline involved in cooking quickly had him hooked! frank started his career making salads and desserts on the riverwalk in san antonio. he quickly learned that cooking was something he enjoyed. the pressure and satisfaction of a busy, successful night was a rush he wanted more of. frank has always said if you have the desire to learn, we can teach you how to cook. 20 years in the kitchen has brought him a lot of education. after his time in san antonio, frank moved back to austin to help open the university of texas golf club, where he moved into a management role and found that developing people's skills was very fulfilling. after helping to build and open a restaurant in lakeway, he started working at la condesa in 2018, where he reconnected with chef rick lopez, who was his lead line cook at that first hotel job on the riverwalk. frank's philosophy: treat others how you wanna be treated and cook food like every table is your kin.
