Where a last minute meal doesn’t have to be a big deal!

ABOUT UNOODLES As a car mechanic in his native El Salvador, Chef Jose David Martinez never imagined one day becoming an Executive Chef and owning his own restaurant. But after coming to the United Stated and taking a job as a dishwasher at the highly acclaimed Xavier’s in Piermont, David has done just that. He spent 18 years developing and perfecting his culinary skills under the tutelage of the Xavier’s owner and Master Chef, Peter Kelly, who recognized his talent and curiosity early on in his career.
iIt was also there that he met his partner Paulo Feteira, who is the co-owner and Maître de ’hotel of UNION Restaurant and Bar Latino. Chef Jose David Martinez is self-taught chef who is constantly studying, reading and experimenting with ingredients. He and wife Maria often spend their one free day each week creating and testing recipes in their home kitchen. Chef Jose David Martinez’s American dream was realized with the opening of UNION Restaurant and Bar Latino in September of 2007 where the innovative menu reflects his distinct style of Latin-fusion continental cuisine.
