Francisco Cisneros

Francisco "Pancho" Cisneros, the chef at Guaymas restuarant in Tiburon from its opening day in 1986 until 2000, died March 4, 2017, of a stroke. He was 62.

During Cisneros' years as chef, Guaymas earned a reputation for serving fine Mexican food featuring the country's regional specialties, such as poblano en nogada — poblano chiles stuffed with marinated braised chicken and raisins, napped with a walnut cream sauce.

"He brought authentic Mexican flavor to Guaymas," said his friend and colleague Roberto Melara, who was bartender and general manager at Guaymas and now is a sommelier in Wine Country.

A memorial mass was held March 9 at the Most Holy Rosary Chapel in San Rafael. Mr. Cisneros will be buried in Los Angeles, where most of his family lives.

Mr. Cisneros is survived by his wife, Luz, of Novato, and three children, Eric, Sandra and Griselda.
