City Oyster & Sushi Bar Pastry Chef


Raised in Tanzania, Africa and of Greek decent, Nico Jambetakis is a true gem in the pastry world. Jambetakis developed a passion for baking at a very early age when his grandmother, who owned a bakery in Tanzania, taught him to make butter cake. Intrigued from the beginning, the budding baker began sneaking into the kitchen while family was sleeping; tossing his treats out the window so he wouldn’t be discovered baking without supervision.

His education continued throughout his adolescence, working alongside his grandmother preparing cookies and breads for the shop. After high school, Jambetakis returned to his homeland and enrolled at Themis pastry school in Crete, Greece in 1981.

In 1996, he decided to explore options in the United States, settling in South Florida where he joined the Big Time Restaurant Group family at Big City Tavern in Boca Raton. Since moving to South Florida, Jambetakis has worked with several notable restaurants in the area including an eatery where he specialized in vegan desserts, but ultimately the talented baker decided to return to the Big Time team as Head Pastry Chef. Amongst his Pastry Chef duties, Jambetakis trains the pastry chefs at all ten Big Time Restaurant Group locations.
