Chef Nicholas began his kitchen adventures as a child, learning how to cook with his grandmother, and went on to graduate from Johnson & Wales. A private chef for an A-list client, his weekly meal prep and dinner party planning allow him to add imagination to new creations, imbuing simple recipes with a sense of elegance and style. Even more than culinary artistry, Chef Nicholas loves the interpersonal connections that well-made food provides.

This dining experience with Chef Nick was exceptional! Our group was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and amazing the food that Chef Nick prepared for us. He was very informative of what ingredients he used and had great recommendations on pairings, but also allowed us to customize our own meal! We were extremely satisfied with this experience!

We look forward to taking more classes with him!
