John Bendokas


Rezza's chef and owner, John Bendokas, learned his craft at the Culinary Institute of America and paid his dues in the kitchens of fine restaurants in New York and New Jersey.
He brings true passion to his gourmet casual Italian fare, from dishes like his House-Rolled Cavatelli, traditional Sunday Gravy, Eggplant Napolitano, to his unforgettable pizzas. And if you’re looking for something that’s very New York, there’s his 28-Day Dry Aged Cowboy Ribeye Steak with Punched Potatoes.
