About Dominic's Table

Chef Dominic Tedesco is a true, creative Renaissance man and Master Chef. Add to this mix his irresistible southern charm and old fashioned business ethics and you have a great recipe for success. Raised in the Midwest by his Italian immigrant parents, he is the youngest of eight boys. Chef Dominic has always stayed true to his Sicilian roots. From an early age, his fascination with great foods grew into what was the beginning of his dream as he learned to cook at his mother’s side. He opened his first restaurants in Indiana and Kentucky. He also became well known on the competitive circuit, winning the International Pizza Championship, as well as various awards for his pizza recipes. In 2006, he decided to return to the classroom and finish his culinary degree in Las Vegas, Nevada where he became an Executive Chef to a whole new audience, including many celebrities from Las Vegas to Hollywood. Dominic Tedesco can also be credited as a producer for the Production Company Red Velvet Entertainment, Inc. Currently, the chef is in development for his own series of television cooking shows and just finished filming a movie he was cast in to be released in theaters, early 2019.

In 2017 Chef Dominic left Las Vegas to make his dream a reality and took his already successful career to a higher level in La Jolla, California. His culinary masterpieces have found a new home with the opening of his new restaurant, Dominic’s Table…. a place where his favorite comfort foods and award winning recipes are being served up daily in this beautiful beach city.

“I want my guests to truly believe they are having dinner at my home. I want that feeling in the dining room,” Tedesco said. “The menu is about 50 percent Italian cuisine, but we will also have an awesome Mediterranean-influenced raw bar and my favorite comfort foods from around the world. There will also be a special “International Menu” featuring dishes that change every month. They are dishes from specific regions, prepared as authentically as possible. I’ve listened to people and what dishes they like,” he said. “I asked them how their grandmothers made these foods then see if I can incorporate the ideas into how we prepare the dishes… I do a lot of research to get the right ingredients. It doesn’t matter how authentic the recipe, if you don’t use the right ingredients, it’s not going to be the same.” — Dominic Tedesco “I want my guests to truly believe they are having dinner at my home.
