Tim Milejovich

Executive Chef

Tim Milojevich is the Co-Owner and Executive Chef of Barrio. Tim grew up in Oregon and got his first kitchen job at a small, prix fixe restaurant showcasing the fresh seafood, game, and produce of the coastline. Drawn to San Francisco’s culinary scene, Tim moved in 2008 and landed his first gig in the city as a Fry Cook at La Mar Cebicheria, where he met his now business partner, Billy Riordan. Tim worked his way up at La Mar eventually serving as the Cebiche Bar Manager, which resulted in an opportunity to travel to Lima, Peru to train with the local La Mar team. After two years at La Mar, Tim moved to Quintana Roo, Mexico, where he consulted at restaurants and resorts, and immersed himself with the food of the Yucatan. Tim then returned to the states where he went on to work at restaurants like Lolinda, El Techo, Belga, and Michael Mina’s Test Kitchen. In 2018, Tim and Billy, decided to partner and open Barrio’s flagship restaurant in North Beach. Barrio’s food is a true reflection of Tim’s culinary experiences as he uniquely blends Mexican, Peruvian, and other Latin cuisines while showcasing the bounty of California.
