We had the good fortune of connecting with Chef Mimmo Alboumeh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mimmo, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?

I wanted to create the next generation by blending the food I love, which is Spanish and Mexican.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The unconditional passion and love I have for the hospitality industry. I love what I do, and I believe it shows up at work with our my employees and our my customers. Authentic, family, togetherness and everyone is welcome. And we prepare our food the same way – – with passion and love. 

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The patio at Little Alley Steak, Kyma, Versano Pizza and Rathbun Steak are among my favorites. We love the N. Georgia mountains and Bryson City, NC. 

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Big shout out to my A Team. Opening Botica requires huge dedication and my management team is my family. I can count on them and they can count on me.
