Felipe Marquez jr. son of Felipe and Miguelina Marquez. Born in New York and raised in Puerto Rico and Bronx, New York. In my family cooking was a way of life. My grandfather owned his own business in Puerto Rico and his talent to manipulate food into a masterpiece was essential. I always remembered enjoying the creative process of cooking since I was a child. Giving 100 percent of effort into anything I do from being captain of my high school basketball team to Executive Chef at several restaurants was always an important factor to me and my formula to success. Now as a new owner of Felly Bistro on Pass you can expect nothing less than the best. Hand-picked meats, seafood, vegetables and an array of food were carefully chosen to my liking. My concept is to serve a meal people will love while having clean and healthy options. Cooking is what I am passionate about and it will show through my food.
