Matt is an executive chef and restaurateur with 34 years of hospitality industry experience, including 21 years of fine dining in the Las Vegas, Baltimore, and New York City areas. 

Matt spent several years as a sous chef, executive chef, and chef de cuisine at such hot NYC spots as Gramercy Tavern, Tabla, Bid, and Fiamma Osteria before taking on the role of executive chef at Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak in Las Vegas for several more years. He was a founding partner and culinary director of Monogram Hospitality in Baltimore, developing a variety of restaurant concepts from fast casual and quick service to ale house and fine dining. Most recently, he's been a regional chef for bartaco, responsible for overseeing four of the taco chain's eateries in the Connecticut and New York markets.
