Tangata (or "mankind" in the tribal Maori language of New Zealand) features Southwestern decor enclosed by glass walls and a ceiling framed with stuccoed beams and large windows to allow ambient light to illuminate the main dining area. Located in the Bowers Museum's mission-style courtyard, the 160-seat restaurant dedicates half of its available seating to al fresco dining on a large patio area. The patio area opens into the mission-style courtyard that is perfect for romantic weddings or evening receptions. Tangata is open solely for lunch Tuesdays through Sundays and serves a diverse menu of California cuisine "colored" with Chef Joachim Splichal's award-winning French signature style.

Executive Chef Donald Harris
Executive Chef, Tangata

For Executive Chef Donald Harris, food was always a family affair. He recounts, “My nana would always have something to feed anyone who stopped by her house to visit, and would not take no for an answer. Seeing all the love that is spent making and eating food is what inspired me to want to be a chef.” Fueled by this childhood passion and an obsession for cooking shows, Harris was set on pursuing a career in the culinary arts.

Harris has been with Patina Restaurant Group ever since his graduation from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, California, with an interlude at famed Orange Country restaurant Marché Moderne. He has worked in his fair share of PRG kitchens from upscale and fine-dining Italian, Mediterranean and French; to medium-size and high-volume.

When asked about his experience and the lessons he has learned from his mentors, Harris expresses in earnest, “I can’t ever thank Nick [Weber] enough for teaching me to be passionate about everything I make. But the person who prepared me most for being a Chef was Ross Pangilinan. If I’ve learned anything from him, it is that nothing is ever perfect, you are never done learning, and you can learn anything from anybody."

Sharing food is a true labor of love, and at Tangata Harris demonstrates this by providing dishes that are simple, flavorful, and clean so that the ingredients can shine.
