Chef Alex Orman was inspired to pursue culinary arts from a young age. Upon moving to the U.S. from Uzbekistan in 1993, he enrolled in hotel and restaurant management courses at New York City College of Technology. In 1998, Chef Alex had the opportunity to relocate and work in the kitchen of the prestigious Hotel de France. Later, Chef Alex ventured to the NYC restaurant scene and served as a pastry chef at the acclaimed Russian Tea Room. There, he received two gold medals from the Salon of Culinary Art of the Societe Culinaire Philanthropique. After stints at the Glen Oaks Country Club, City Hall, La Grenouille and Gascogne Bistro, Chef Alex opened his own restaurant in Staten Island, Alor Cafe. Over seven years, Alor Cafe transformed into a fine dining and music venue. Today, Chef Alex is the proud father of three, living with his wife and children in Brooklyn.
