About the Guest Chef
Arthur Gonzalez, Executive Chef of Roe Seafood and Panxa Cocina
Cherishing the fresh bounty of the sea at Roe Seafood and the distinct flavors of New Mexico at Panxa Cocina, Owner and Executive Chef Arthur Gonzalez brings inspired cuisine to Long Beach that hinges on sustainably sourced ingredients. A SoCal native, Gonzalez flourished in a multicultural upbringing that has inspired his unique cuisine. After realizing his passion for cooking, he relocated to New Mexico, where he briefly worked for the Hyatt New Mexico under chef Hans Seblin and soon after took off for Santa Fe, landing at Geronimo—one of the most acclaimed restaurants in the city. Distefano mentored Gonzalez on French technique, European cuisine, plating, finishing, and more, fine-tuning and elevating his skillset. Today, Chef Arthur Gonzalez incorporates his diverse rolodex of cuisines to create unique, world-class dishes at his own restaurants.
