When celebrity chef Aarón Sanchez is not writing cookbooks or filming episodes of “Chopped” and “Heat Seekers” for the Food Network, this 36-year-old celebrity chef is running restaurants in New York City and Leawood. Yep, Leawood. In November, Sanchez opened Mestizo, a contemporary Mexican restaurant in the Park Place development. Earlier this month, we met Sanchez on Mestizo’s newly unveiled patio and grilled him on tequila and his impressions of our area.
