Chef Marcos Spaziani brings his rich background from Caracas, Venezuela, infusing Spanish and Italian influences into his creations. Spaziani’s career is a spectacle in its own right, which begins in Miami, FL. He found himself cooking for top celebrities and officials like Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Barack Obama, and many others. After cooking for high officials on land, Chef Marcos decided to go out to sea. He sailed on countless yachts and boats for six years. This led to his involvement in the popular Bravo reality show, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, where Marcos was the head chef on Season Three of the show.
Chef Louis Huh, a culinary maverick hailing from Los Angeles, seamlessly melds his expertise in hospitality management with a profound passion for the art of cooking. Chef Louis did not attend culinary school, instead he worked his way up the ladder from dishwasher to the head chef at Taste on Melrose, a popular celebrity dining destination in Beverly Hills. Chef Louis is best known for his ability to craft exquisite asian fusion dishes.
Marcos and Louis eventually crossed paths while both working at Taste on Melrose. Immediately hitting it off, the pair ventured into business together. After Taste shutdown, they decided to start a food truck, which became wildly popular. This led to them cooking at UCLA, which ended up expanding into a catering business. After Marcos returned from Below Deck, the pair decided to open up a restaurant in Downtown LA called Marlou. It was open for a year and a half until unfortunately closing due to unforeseen building maintenance issues. The pair is now opening Lou’Mar.
