Most of the year, Siena Bistro in Willow Glen serves award-winning cuisine prepared and conceptualized by Siena’s Owner/Head Chef David Wiesner. But, on Saturday, August 19 from 5 pm to 10 pm, Siena Bistro is converting itself into a Spanish Villa, when Wiesner and his staff will host their 6th annual Paella Fiesta, featuring two types of paella, a wide range of appetizing tapas and all-you-can drink white and red sangria. A portion of all proceeds from the event will go to Martha’s Kitchen in Willow Glen, an organization that has served more than 3 million meals since its inception in 1981.
Chef David is excited to be putting on his Paella Fiesta for yet another summer. Last year the patio was rocking all night long and he’s anticipating an even better turnout this time around. He presenting an incredible meal of all-you-can eat paella again this year and we are also going to create some wonderful seasonal Spanish-influenced dishes. Chef David explained. “A few years back, I took a culinary vacation to Spain and learned so much about paella, tapas and everything Spanish. I integrate much of what I discovered on that vacation into many of the dishes I serve at the Paella Fiesta.”
Chef David is also happy to support a cause like Martha’s Kitchen, an organization he has been helping for over 10 years. We have been working with Edita Cruz, their Executive Director and we’re really pleased to be donating to Martha’s Kitchen. Hunger is a problem everywhere and San Jose is surely no exception, so we want to help whenever we can.”
