ABOUT THE CHEF

Orlando Mulé

“When you love to eat you love to cook.”

From a young age Orlando Mule loved to watch people prepare food. My Italian grandmother, my mom and chefs who worked at our family restaurant inspired me and made me eager to start cooking.

My father was a butcher and owned his paternal family butcher shop/Italian grocery store. Later, moving on with his own family, opened two restaurants that I’ve been involved in: our family business “Orlando le Roi du Sous-Marin” since it first opened in 1980 and “Trattoria del Buon Gustaio” from 1982 to 1989.

I started working there during the weekends and summer time. After two years of school in a business commerce program at Dawson College, I decided to pursue my managerial position in the restaurant and as a Chef. Now, with 24 years of experience in the food service, I want to bring my success here in the South Bay area, at Redondo Beach.
