Director of Operations

When he’s not overseeing the crew and making sure everything is running as smooth as our tableside guacamole, Keith enjoys watching TCU Football (Go Frogs!), listening to his favorite band Pepper, and spending time with wife Ashley, daughter Toryn and their family cat, Leia.

Juan Saldaña

General Manager

On his way to becoming a professional pilot, Juan landed at Ácenar in 2008 as a bartender and decided to stay grounded. He worked himself up the ranks at Ácenar. As GM, Juan steers his crew with strong, positive guidance ensuring the restaurant is flying at its peak and looking great every day. When he’s not working, you’ll catch Juan at the lake on his jet skis, fishing at the Coast, hunting or traveling.

Patty Deptawa

Service Manager

This Front of House Manager ensures every guest experience is an enjoyable and memorable one! You’ll most likely see Patty working the floor, greeting guests at the door as they come and go, and handling reservations for our many large parties. On her days off, Patty enjoys spending time with her three children and feasting on her mom’s homestyle Thai cooking!
