José Pablo Garcia, the executive chef at Manzke, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of hospitality.
Hailing from over two decades of experience in the restaurant industry, Mr. Garcia has distinguished himself as the executive chef of both Manzke and Bicyclette. In this capacity, he ensures that the culinary offerings in the two establishments under his purview are characterized by a focus on intricate details, driven by the finest ingredients, and presented in a distinct and innovative manner. Manzke, a Michelin star restaurant based in Los Angeles, offers an exquisite dining experience and a meticulously crafted 12-course preset tasting menu. Bicyclette, meanwhile, captures the essence of a classic Parisian dining establishment. Throughout the course of his career, Mr. Garcia has taken great pride in his involvement with several highly acclaimed restaurants around the world, including such esteemed establishments as The French Laundry, Hotel Lameloise, Restaurant Daniel and Restaurant Le Bec Fin.

Surpassing initial expectations, he has attained a position that reflects his unwavering dedication.
