From a young age, growing up in the Philippines, Chef Anthony’s passion developed while helping his mother prepare traditional meals in the kitchen for his family. At the age of 12, Chef Anthony and his family moved to Maryland, where he began what would become his career in the restaurant industry. After only one month of working as a dishwasher in a small local restaurant, his enthusiasm for food was apparent and he was promoted to preparing food on the line. Chef Anthony pursued his passion when he attended Johnson and Wales University in North Miami, Florida and obtained a degree in culinary arts.
After graduating, he held several positions at Baleen, Café Tabac and Poppy and Grand Café Orsini. Chef Anthony furthered his training while working with noted executive chefs in the industry such as Claude Troigros, Robin Hass and Piero Premoli, current executive chef of Pricci, a sister restaurant to City Fish Market in Atlanta. “I am excited about being a part of such a unique concept and such a top-notch company as Buckhead Life Restaurant Group,” said Chef Anthony. “City Fish Market will highlight the best local seafood and service while keeping prices affordable.”
Anthony and his wife Jessica have a four-year-old son, Micah. In his leisure time, he enjoys golf, football (especially the Miami Dolphins), and is an enthusiast of reggae music.
