Juan Urbieta

My Favorite Tech


Juan Urbieta has served since 2002 as the executive chef and general manager at Ristorante Bartolotta, The Bartolotta Restaurants’ flagship concept. Urbieta joined the Milwaukee-based restaurant group in 1998 as a sous chef at Nonna Bartolotta’s and later at Mr. B’s – A Bartolotta Steakhouse. A native of Oaxaca, Mexico, Urbieta started his culinary career in 1993 in Los Angeles. He has since worked at restaurants in Denver, and at Spiaggia in Chicago, where he was trained by Paul Bartolotta and sent to Italy for a year to learn about Italian cuisine. As a head chef – and a family man – Urbieta relies on the following tech tools to follow industry trends and to stay in touch with friends and family members abroad:


“I love Twitter. It’s easy to be very selective about what you want to learn or hear about. I follow sports, news, political commentators, and of course chefs, restaurants, wineries and everything that has to do with the restaurant world. You can follow me @J_Urbieta.”

“I had to get this app to communicate with my numerous family members and old school friends back in Mexico and even Italy. It is a very popular app in other countries because it basically gives users free unlimited texting, calling and video calling, features that are common here in the U.S., but not necessarily elsewhere.”

“This is an app that allows you and your family to keep tabs on each other. Its GPS tells me when my son leaves the house, when he arrives at school and when he comes back home.”  


“I’m an aviation fanatic so I love Flightradar24, an app that lets you see a live map of air traffic in your area or anywhere in the world. You can find out flight information, including the altitude, estimated arrival time, speed and direction the plane is flying.”
