Jose Martinez
Executive Sous Chef

A native of Miami, Florida, Jose Martinez worked in the kitchens of some of the city’s finest restaurants before coming on board at Gianni’s at The Villa Casa Casuarina at the former Versace Mansion. With over sixteen years of culinary experience under his toque, Martinez honed his skills at restaurants including Palme d’Ore at the Biltmore Hotel, Emeril’s at the Loews Miami Beach and Jaguar in Coconut Grove, before shifting gears to become pastry chef at City Hall, a restaurant in downtown Miami.

Joining the culinary team at Gianni’s in 2014, Martinez now spearheads all culinary operations including the execution of menus, catering for banquet functions and in-room dining. His simple, yet elegant, culinary approach coupled with his knowledge of local product has proven to be an asset to the Gianni’s team and the restaurant’s intimate and refined Italian atmosphere.

Gianni’s is located at 1116 Ocean Drive, in Miami Beach. The restaurant is open daily for lunch at 12PM to 4:30PM and dinner from 6PM to 11PM, seven nights a week. Valet is available. Telephone: (786) 485-2200; http://vmmiamibeach.com/gianni/
