Rivera was plucked from the ranks of the George's California Modern kitchen to help launch the modern Mexican eatery, which opened in La Jolla Shores last year. The 25-year-old chef was lauded for her "skill and elegance", and regarding her work at Galaxy Taco, one nominating voice said, "The integrity of her ingredients and the creative interpretation of modern Mexican cuisine is exemplary."
