General Manager, El Gaucho Bellevue

When serving guests and leading his team, Ryan Bear is inspired by the words of Dean Koontz and strives to “Brighten the corner where you are, and you will light the world.” He joined El Gaucho in June 2021 after nearly two decades in the hospitality industry and at 37 reached his goal of being a general manager by the age of 40. Ryan most recently served as the general manager of Everett’s 8800 at Big Sky Resort in Montana which is located at 8800 feet of elevation and only accessed by ski lift and stocked by a Snowcat vehicle.

Ryan was born in Staten Island, NY and grew up there and in the Bronx. His father played outfield for the NY Mets, Pirates, and Tigers, and won a World Series with the 1960 Pirates, where he played with Roberto Clemente. An avid reader and writer, Ryan graduated high school in the top 1% in the state of New York in English and graduated from Oklahoma Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, OK with a major in political science and a minor in journalism. He enjoys spending time with family and friends and singing Karaoke after enjoying a Rowan’s Creek Manhattan.

Executive Chef, El Gaucho Bellevue

El Gaucho Bellevue executive chef, Margarito Moreno, says that he seeks to learn something new every day. After 14 years in the kitchen at El Gaucho Bellevue, Margarito is ready to lead and teach, while continuing to grow in his own career. Margarito grew up in Netzahualcoyotl, Mexico and learned to cook from his mother at the age of seven.

He moved to Seattle when he was 20 years old and worked for a variety of restaurants before joining the El Gaucho team in 2005. Over the last 14 years, Margarito has worked in every role and station in the kitchen. Margarito was promoted to Executive Chef because of his natural leadership, hard work ethic, passion for his team, and the El Gaucho culture and values.

Margarito enjoys spending time with his wife, Beatriz, his two daughters and son, his first grandchild and their dog.
