Chef Maro Molteni

Chef Mariano Maro Molteni

For more than 20 years, Chef Maro Molteni has perfected operations and customer satisfaction in the food and beverage industry. Chef Maro has traveled a world of cuisines and cross cultures, working in and operating restaurants in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Columbia and in both New York and South Orange County in the United States.

From extensive operations and management, Chef Maro stepped into ownership of his first tapas restaurant in 2001, and then opened Maro Wood Grill. Initially a New York-based restaurant, Chef Maro and his family moved to Laguna Beach with the Maro Wood Grill concept, establishing it there in January 2011.

For several years, Maro Wood Grill earned regional accolades including Best Place to Eat (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), Best Burger and Best Dessert awards in those same years, and was the first green certified business in Laguna Beach in 2017.
