Chef Cody Storts, formerly of Grits Fullerton, has joined the team at Tempo Urban Kitchen as Executive Chef. Tempo Urban Kitchen, started nearly 2 years ago by Lascari’s and Cibo Fresh President Jorge Cueva, focuses on American-inspired Mexican food, inclusive of the melting pot of influences modern America draws from.

Cueva recently opened his second location in Anaheim Hills, with plans to expand to Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles, Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico, and Tokyo, Japan in the coming year. Storts will helm the expansion in the kitchen, with his first item of business being the launch of Tempo’s brunch menu this weekend.

… Plus, a couple standard breakfast plates, flatbreads, tacos, fresh salads and more! Brunch will launch first in Anaheim Hills before heading to Brea, and diners can also look forward to Storts to mixing up the already-eclectic dinner menu as well.


Fast Food Maven Nancy Luna of the Orange County Register recently wrote about Storts’ transition to Tempo in the Register. Those articles can be read here and here.
