Interim Executive Chef
Manny began his career with Reserve 22 and the Village Links in March of 2016. Manny’s passion for food and cooking began when he was just 8 years old. He would help his mother make tamales and sell them at the local market. Chef Manny realized immediately he loved seeing everyone’s reaction to the delicacies he helped his mother prepare. That desire to watch the joy on people’s faces as they enjoyed his food has driven Chef Manny ever since. When not cooking here at Reserve 22, he enjoys spending time with his dogs and playing the sax. Manny has honed his skills through past experience with the Arista Hotel in Naperville. He is a graduate of the College of DuPage Culinary Arts and Baking program.
