Ryan Martinez

Using fresh, high quality ingredients, Chef/Co-Owner Ryan Martinez personally works his magic into bringing your menu to life. Chef Ryan’s culinary career began in a small family-owned Hawaiian restaurant in San Diego, California. There, he added original dishes to the specials menu and developed a loyal clientele who enjoyed his simple preparation of comfort food. His move to Los Angeles landed him in the kitchens of Yojie Japanese Shabu-Shabu and Sake Bar, The Hudson, and The Orlando Hotel. Under the wing of his mentor, Chef Greg deMichiel, Ryan also worked at Maison Catering. This experience ingrained in him a demand for high quality ingredients and discerning eye for presentation. Concurrently, Chef Ryan joined the Dolce Group, working on opening a new restaurant called Lemon Basket, and was featured in VH1’s reality show, “Famous Food.” When production wrapped, he carried on leading the kitchen’s operations as Sous Chef, and eventually becoming its Executive Chef. In 2011, Chef Ryan grabbed the scholarship opportunity to study at The French Culinary Institute in Campbell, California. Today, Chef Ryan enjoys taking advantage of Northern California’s bounty of fresh produce and meats in creating dishes for Absolute Celebrations Catering.
