Cook some spinach risotto, a pork chop and gravy meatball sliders with Little Owl in New York City.


How did you get started?

Born and raised in Philly, I was always inspired by the food of my childhood, growing up cooking with my grandmother. My first job was as a dishwasher at a restaurant on the Jersey Shore, and from there I was hooked by the energetic nature of restaurant life. After studying restaurant management at Penn State, I traveled from Italy to France, learning about French winemaking and honing my skills with Mediterranean cuisine. When I returned to the States, I worked everywhere from Los Angeles to New York, as chef de cuisine of Universal Studio’s Executive Dining Room and eventually opening The Harrison in Tribeca. After I became executive chef of an Italian restaurant in Tribeca called Pace, in 2006 I set out to open the restaurant I had always dreamed of opening – The Little Owl.

Do you host any special events?

Whether it’s for 2 people or 2000 people, we strive to bring the charm of the Little Owl to you. Never assume that something cannot be done.
