Alexis Martinez

Executive Chef

About Alexis Martinez

Alexis was born and raised in a small town in Arizona. It was in the kitchen of the home that he shared with his mother and three siblings that his love for cooking took shape. When Alexis thinks of home, he remembers it for the smells and sounds of his mother spending all day cooking big meals for their family. When he left home for the “big city” of Tucson, AZ at 18 years old, Alexis found himself bussing tables at a busy, luxury resort. He worked his way up learning each station, every cooking technique, and all of the ins and outs of the culinary world under the mentorship of an incredible French Chef. He is well rounded and humble for the years that he spent perfecting each area before moving to the next. In 2011, Alexis was offered an Executive Chef position in Denver, CO, where he would meet his now wife. Since then, Alexis has held several leadership roles, competed in local cooking competitions, and graced the pages of Foodies West Magazine. A natural conversationalist, Alexis has a knack for making people feel at ease. He has a service heart and finds incredible joy in serving others. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife, three children, and two dogs doing all things Colorado – hiking, camping, skiing, yoga, and exploring the food scene.
