Chef Matt Migliore has cooked at some of New York City’s top restaurants for the past decade. He is well versed in, but not limited to, working with various cuisines such as Peruvian, Japanese, and Modern American. He is a minimalistic chef that strongly believes each ingredient should stand on its own.


Starting his professional career in New York City, he helmed the kitchen as Chef de Cuisine at Llama Inn, Brooklyn, NY. During this time, Chef Matt was named Chopped Winner on Season 41, Episode 12, “Belly of the Beast”. He was also featured on Best Thing I Ever Ate for his lime pie. After five years of developing and pioneering the “style” of Brooklyn Fare, Chef Matt moved to Morimoto where he extended his knowledge of Japanese cuisine. Prior to Morimotos’ closing, Matt was the Executive Sous Chef of omakase (Japanese tasting menu) bar and ran a 12-14 course tasting menu. He then landed at Madre in Greenpoint, Brooklyn as Executive Sous Chef where he worked briefly, just before the quarantine went into full effect. During this time of adversity, Chef Matt decided to pivot to recipe consulting and hosting virtual cooking classes in order to continue his career as a chef.
