About our chefs
Chef Michael Ferraro
Michael Ferraro’s culinary career began early on, inspired by his Southern Italian parents and their love and respect for quality and tradition. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America at age 20, Ferraro sought opportunities to further develop his own creativity.
Ferraro’s culinary repertoire flourished during an internship under Chef Waldy Malouf at Beacon Restaurant, followed by Jean-Georges’ Mercer Kitchen as Chef de Partie, where he developed and refined his culinary techniques. He proceeded to New York City’s famed 5-star, 5-diamond Four Seasons Hotel where he served as Chef Tournant. It was there where he extended his skills to all outlets of the hotel, landing him at its fine dining restaurant, Fifty Seven Fifty Seven, pleasing the palettes of the restaurant’s most exclusive clientele. After spending 3 years with the Four Seasons, Ferraro went on to take the role of Sous Chef at the Biltmore Room, working under Chef Gary Robins. At the Biltmore Room, Ferraro was exposed to the creative expressions of Chef Gary Robins’ use of Asian and progressive American cooking techniques. When the Biltmore room closed, Ferraro took top toque as Chef de Cuisine at Patina Restaurant Groups’ Café Centro, followed by his first Executive Chef position at fine dining seafood establishment, Fresh in Tribeca.
In 2008, Ferraro took over the kitchen at the recently-opened SoHo restaurant Delicatessen, where he elevated the cuisine to its current state, continuing to update the menu seasonally and reflecting his most recent travels…click here to learn more about Chef Michael Ferraro.
