BET YOU DIDN'T KNOWCatalina’s stellar reputation, reflected in its impressively full award-mantel, wouldn't be what it is today if it weren’t for its incredible kitchen staff. The current Head Chef, Mark Axisa, has been working his way through the Catalina kitchen for the past ten years, gaining such a refined knowledge of local ingredients and the restaurant’s specialties that it was only natural that in May 2010, when the position of Head Chef opened up, Chef Axisa would take over.
Chef Axisa brought to the position an intimate understanding of the things that have made Catalina great, for instance the fabulous seafood preparations demanded by its iconic location – from the freshest line-caught fish to oysters shucked to order. Inspired by the classics, and bursting with passion, his creativity is reflected in some of the exciting new dishes he has brought Catalina, new twists on the top-quality ingredients that fill Catalina’s kitchen.
