Executive Chef, Proprietor
While many chefs worked their way through various kitchens, it was Chris Scarduzio, a West Philadelphia native who earned a partnership in Georges Perrier’s restaurant empire.
After graduating CIA with top honors, Chris was hired to launch the The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Philadelphia. After a successful run with the Ritz, Chris was hand picked by Perrier to assist with the opening of his new restaurant, Brasserie Perrier, where he started as executive sous chef and was promoted to chef/partner after six short months. Under Chris’s direction the restaurant received countless awards, including Conde Nast Magazine’s Top 25 Restaurants in the Country, Wall Street Journal’s Top 10 Places to Eat French Food in America, a three-bell (excellent) review from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan, just to name just a few. He owned two award-winning restaurants in Atlantic City, Mia in Caesars Hotel & Casino and Scarduzio’s Steak & Sushi located in Showboat Casino.
Chris’s unique blend of culinary expertise, business acumen and passion has lead him to be one of most well respected chefs in Philadelphia.
