Chef Martinez’s experience resides with the chefs and restaurants he trained in with exceptional results. Chef Martinez established a presence as a first-rate talent seizing an opportunity to apprentice with the legendary French chef and restaurateur, Joël Robuchon, at Restaurant Jamin in Paris. Chef Martinez continued his career working at Lucas Carlton in Paris with Alain Senderens, a founder of New French cuisine, and later with Chef Michel Guerard at Eugénie les Bains, which earned three Michelin stars.

Chef Martinez was awarded his own Michelin star for Maison Blanche, Paris and in 2010 became a James Beard Award nominee for Best Chef South. Maison Blanche on Longboat Key is unanimously praised by foodies and reviewers as Sarasota’s best. Additionally, the restaurant just made the OpenTable list of the 100 Best Restaurants in America for 2016. Chef Martinez is married to Victoria with three children, Jose Jr., Sophia and Carla.
