Pavel has been living in Prague since 2010, where he first came to cook in La Casata. Two years later, he joined the team of the renowned restaurant Aromi, where he worked under the supervision of the world-famous Italian chef Riccardo Lucque, with the then chef of Aromi, Radek Hasman. This allowed Pavel to gain very valuable experience he applies in his cooking to this day. He looks back at those years with great pride.
In 2013, Pavel Štěpánek joined the hotel restaurant Como restaurant & cocktail bar to work as a sous chef of a team led by Dušan Mackovič. After several years of working with and learning from Dušan, Pavel became the new chef of Como restaurant & cocktail bar in 2019, particularly thanks to his hard work and diligence.
