Rafael Delgado Headshot

Director of Bakery Operations

Rafael Delgado

Rafael Delgado believes in the power of food to change the world. From coordinating World Central Kitchen relief efforts in Central Florida to opening an elevated dining gastro-advocacy restaurant concept for Immigrant Food in DC, Rafael is excited to serve as the Director of Bakery Operations at Dog Tag and use his expansive hospitality experience to continue building longer tables.

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, both his father and uncle served in the US Army. Prior to joining the hospitality world, Rafael worked as a professional classical ballet dancer, representing the US with the first American Performing Arts Organization to perform in the Cairo Opera House in Cairo, Egypt (1989).

Rafael really enjoys Dog Tag’s equally sweet and savory caramelized onion, gruyere, and apple scone, but it was the red velvet cookies that pulled him into wanting to join the Dog Tag Bakery team.
