Cella Restaurant Welcomes Chef Cal Stamenov

Posted on May 16th, 2023 by Cella Restaurant and Bar

Cella Restaurant and Bar welcomes our new Executive Chef Cal Stamenov to the team at 525 Polk Street in Downtown Old Monterey. Blending classic technique with local simplicity and slow food cooking, Chef Cal brings years of experience and relationships with the area's best farmers and foragers.

Chef Cal, who has become the chef's chef of the Central Coast, has reigned from the early days of the Highlands Inn overseeing the Masters of Food and Wine events, to building Bernardus Lodge's culinary team that would end up cultivating some of the area's best chefs.

Chefs Ben Spungin and Cal Stamenov are happy to be back together again at Cella after working with each other at Bernardus Lodge during the iconic years of Marinus Restaurant.
