About the Chef

Executive Chef: Jose I. Avelar

With every dish comes a whole new experience of elegance accompanied by passion, and heart. Much of the elegance, passion, and heart derive from proprietor and Chef Jose Avelar. Jose discovered his love for cooking at a young age when he would accompany his father, Isaac, to fine restaurants in Greenwich where he cooked. Watching his father create amazing meals fostered Jose’s passion for cooking.  He quickly decided this would be his life’s work. Much of his hard work and dedication came as an inspiration from his father. “I did it for my father, because he never could.”

Chef Avelar, 39 years of age, came from El Salvador at the age of 12.  He graduated from Port Chester High School in 1991 and received culinary training in his late teens. During his last two years of his high school education he attended Southern Westchester BOCES in Valhalla NY to begin his training in the culinary arts. He later attended Westchester Community College in 1992 and received a certificate of completion for the culinary arts program. On his road towards education he attended the Culinary Institute of America in 1995 to re-certify and further his degree in the culinary arts, receiving an Associates degree in culinary arts for Advanced Career Experience students (ACE).

Through out his career he has had much experience in the kitchen ranging from first line cook to sous chef up to executive chef.  He has had a variety of different employers and owned his own restaurant.
