Enjoy this “In The Kitchen” Guest Article by MiamiTimes, who got ready for South Beach Seafood Week with Executive Chef Arturo Paz of Lobster Bar Sea Grille
From architecture student at Cornell, to renowned chef showcasing his work at globally known events, Chef Arturo Paz is one interesting guy.
He brings his unique talents to the sands of South Beach on Saturday, October 20th for the award-winning South Beach Seafood Festival!
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Paz was accepted to Cornell University at the age of 17. The cold weather, however steered him away and led him to explore other options, which would later turn out to make him the man he is today.
Unable to sustain the freezing temperatures, and we don’t blame him; he decided to transfer to Tulane University in New Orleans. That move would then propel him to working at some of the most famous New Orleans’ kitchens.
Architecture student during the day, and cook during the nights, Arturo Paz continued developing his passion for the culinary world. After a few years working in architecture, he decided to go back to school to become a Chef.
Graduating from Johnson and Wales in 1993, Chef Arturo Paz continued exploring new opportunities to grow. He is now the Executive Chef at Lobster Bar Sea Grille.
