Why Celebrity Chefs Choose Indoteak Design Reclaimed Teak

Celebrity Chefs & Indoteak Design

The phenomena of celebrity chefs and binge worthy TV shows has been popular for over two decades now. Shows like Iron Chef helped rebuild interest in culinary cuisine and that spilled over into dozens of other shows, concepts and brick-and-morter restaurants across the globe. Our reclaimed teak flooring, teak tiles, custom tables and siding are a top choice for restaurants, not only because of its stunning beauty, but because of its incredible resistance to water. Restaurants get incredible amounts of foot-traffic, resulting in high wear and tear. Our amazing wood is hundreds of years old and has been proven to be long lasting as well as unique and stunning to look at. The level of performance stretches out the investment of the client all while adding an intrinsic quality to the decor that cannot be duplicated.

Here is a list of celebrity Chefs who have chosen Indoteak Design products for their own restaurants.

Lorena Garcia


Garcia has appeared on Top Chef Masters, NBC’s-America’s Next Great Restaurant and many more programs, not only as a contestant but as a judge or investor for budding chefs and contestants. Garcia also saw obesity as a growing problem and wanted to do something about it. She created “Big Chef, Little Chef”, in an effort to help end the problem of childhood obesity. “Big Chef, Little Chef” is a non-profit organization that aims to encourage healthy eating starting at a young age. The foods Garcia develops for “Big Chef, Little Chef” are Hispanic foods.


In May of 2017, Garcia opened her own restaurant in Las Vegas. CHICA is housed within the Venetian Hotel and features a dynamic menu based on healthy recipes from throughout South America. Garcia is the first female-Latin chef to be featured on the strip. The decor of the restaurant is bright and colorful and features Indoteak Design’s “Amy” Cinta Tile on all the restaurant tables.
