Our goal at ChefMendivel.com is to promote food ethics, sustainability and the delicious possibilities that come with every season.  We work with local Farms, Fish Anglers, Craftspeople and Markets to ensure we are using the most fresh and locally sourced products available. Our culture is made up of three criteria; Quality, Respect and Learning. Quality ingredients, people and time. Respect for ingredients, animals and each other. Learning, we never stop learning. The most experienced chef can still improve. Many of our dishes are named after family members or the mentors that taught them to us as a way to show respect and give a sense of family to our clients. Teaching the next generation is also very important and a driving force for what we do in the community. We love feeding people so giving back to the community is a pleasure for us. When the restaurant landscape changed in 2020 we decided it would be safer to feed people in their own home rather than a restaurant, that was a lightbulb moment and a catalyst for the beginning of an amazing journey. Thank you so much for taking the time to visiting our site and we hope to cook for you soon! Bon Appétit

Our seafood comes right off the boat! Chelsea Rose is always stocked with the freshest local varieties. Located in Newport harbor, Chelsea Rose has been in business for generations. 



All over the world Farmer's Markets are still the best way to learn about local ingredients and meet the people who make it their life's mission to put food on our table day in and day out. There's nothing more exciting for a chef than learning about and using fresh ingredients direct from the source.
