Early in his career, he met Jean-Georges Vongerichten who became his mentor, and went on to work for him at Jean Georges, Dune, and Spice Market, where he served as Executive Sous Chef. Shortly thereafter, he was invited by Alain Ducasse to create a special seasonal menu at his Paris restaurant Spoon Food & Wine, the first American to receive such an honor.[citation needed]

He currently lives in New York City.

Sosa owned a sandwich shop named 'Xie Xie' (meaning thank you in Mandarin) for a short time, but it is now closed.

Sosa would return to compete on Top Chef All-Stars. He was eliminated in seventh place.

In March 2011, Sosa opened Social Eatz in Manhattan's Midtown East, serving American standards, spiced up using Asian flavors and techniques. In March 2013, Social Eatz closed. [1] In 2012, Sosa opened Añejo Tequileria in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen, serving unique tequilas and original takes on traditional Mexican tastes.[2]
