      Chef Linda Johnsen is the Owner/Executive Chef of Filomena’s Italian Kitchen and opening in December 2016, Filomena’s Italian Market, both located in Costa Mesa. Linda grew up in South Philly in a traditional Italian American family. She spent Sundays with her Grandmother, Filomena, and Aunt Rosemary walking to the open-air specialty markets for fresh ingredients to prepare the family dinner and making a pot of Sunday Sauce. This is where the tradition and techniques of Italian cooking and learning the secrets to making “homemades” or pasta were passed down to Linda and what she now shares with her guests in her restaurant and specialty food market.

      Accolades: Opened in 2013, the Italian Kitchen has been named one of the Orange County Register’s 2015 Best Top 10 Italian Restaurant’s in the OC, and for a second year in a row, one of the 75 Best Places to Eat in the OC. Her award-winning pizza has been honored in 2016 by ranking #9 in the Register’s Top 20 Best Pizzas in Orange County, and #4 in Orange Coast magazines Best 28 in the OC. The Italian Kitchen was also ranked the #1 restaurant in Costa Mesa by Trip Advisor.

      Expansion: Filomena’s Italian Market is an extension of Chef Linda’s restaurant and offers customers a vast assortment of specialty Italian foods, meats, cheeses, sandwiches and prepared favorites from her restaurant. Her award winning pizza will be available by the slice along with a gelato bar to satisfy that Italian sweet tooth. Known for an extensive selection of unique wines offered by the glass in her restaurant, the market will offer retail wine sales as well as fun tasting events curated by chef Linda and her Sommelier.

      Affiliations: Chef Linda spends the majority of her time making sure her guests are being properly fed as a true Italian mother would do. She is also passionate about supporting the charities that feed and provide services to Orange County’s homeless population. She has been a return guest chef supporting S.O.S (Save our Selves) Annual Celebrity Chef Dinner and Wild & Crazy Taco Nights. She also supports the Illumination Foundation as chef/caterer at the annual Designer Runway charity event in the Laguna Design Center and a participating chef in Illumination Foundation's OC Chef's Table since 2016.
