General Manager, El Gaucho Portland

After graduating from Evergreen State College, Gillian’s love of travel drove her to buy an around-the-world ticket to explore the globe before settling into a career in journalism. That was promptly stalled after her first stop in Hawaii, where the week turned in a 3-month stay and included her first job in a restaurant. She fell in love with the fast-paced, multi-faceted work that the restaurant business had to offer, and she’s been working in the industry in various capacities ever since.

Gillian joined the El Gaucho Portland team in 2012, and served as the Wine Captain until her promotion to General Manager. Growing up in Portland, Gillian loves to explore the local wine region and keep up on the local restaurant scene with her husband, Joe. Among other hobbies, she loves to cook, organize, make tiny little appetizers, host dinner parties, and hang with her Chocolate lab-Chesapeake bay retriever, Baila.

Executive Chef, El Gaucho Portland

Chef Beau Carr is a Portland legend after his 21 years as executive chef at the RingSide Steakhouse and we are thrilled that he has joined the El Gaucho team as Executive Chef at El Gaucho Portland kitchen. Chef Beau was born in North Carolina and grew up in the Columbia Gorge town of White Salmon, WA. He began cooking in high school for cafes in White Salmon and Stevenson WA.

After high school he joined the team in a few major hotel kitchens in Portland and worked his way up the ranks. He decided to pursue a career as an executive chef and attended Western Culinary Institute (now known as Le Cordon Bleu) and graduated in 1990. Joining the El Gaucho family came naturally to Beau, especially because he recently married El Gaucho Portland wine captain, Kate Lasley Carr. He is the father of three daughters and grandfather to two young boys. He enjoys spending time with his family, especially while boating on the Columbia River.

Live Music: Mariano Tuesday, Thursday-Saturday. Toshi Onizuka Wednesday.
Unfortunately, live music will be unavailable until Multnomah County guidelines allow solo musicians to perform.
