A native to the West Coast, John Mantor found his calling to cuisine while living in Seattle, Washington. He eventually found a passion for great wine and the flavors of Spain as he worked his way through Southern California. This is where he honed his palate and grew as a leader, spending time at Kincaid’s Seafood & Chop House and then Meditteraneo. After almost a decade in Los Angeles, he moved to the Bay Area as an Executive Chef and developed a passion for Seasonal Coastal Cuisine and local ingredients. John is a new comer to the East coast and looks forward to bringing his passion for fresh, regional food to the Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront and Surf Club Ocean Grille.
