Andrew Carmellini was born February 12, 1971 and is a chef, restaurateur and American travel authority currently living and working in New York City.
In 1996 Carmellini™s career shifted from Italian to French cooking when he returned to New York City for good to accept a sous chef job at Le Cirque followed by becoming chef de cuisine under Daniel Boulud at CafÃ© Boulud where he would remain for six years winning two James Beard Foundation Awards and a three-star review from the New York Times.
During this time American travel became a focus for Carmellini, taking frequent road trips in search of the best regional road snacks from barbecue to root beer to po boys.
Returning to Italian cooking, Carmellini opened A Voce as Executive Chef in 2006 in New York City™s Madison Square Park neighborhood where he would earn a Michelin Star. His first cookbook, Urban Italian: True Stories and Simple recipes from a Life In Food, was published in Fall 2008 by Bloomsbury Press. It was co-written by his wife, Gwen Hyman. The pair will publish their second cookbook together, American Flavor, with EchoHarperCollins in 2011.
Currently, Carmellini is the chef and partner at Locanda Verde and The Dutch. Locanda Verde, a James Beard Award nominee for Best New Restaurant in 2010, is located inside Robert De Niro™s The Greenwich Hotel and serves simple Italian food in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The Dutch is an American restaurant in SoHo on the corner of Prince Street and Sullivan Street that he opened with his partners Luke Ostrom and Josh Pickard in April 2011.
