Chef Tony Mantuano & chef john hogan JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNER TONY MANTUANO IS INTERNATIONALLY REGARDED AS AN INFLUENTIAL CULINARY FORCE.

In addition to his role as chef-partner at Michelin Star restaurant Spiaggia, Mantuano is the chef-partner at River Roast, situated on the Chicago River; Terzo Piano, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant at The Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago; Terralina Crafted Italian, a waterfront Italian restaurant located in Disney Springs set to open this Spring; and a new restaurant concept set to open early 2019 in the heart of Wrigleyville in partnership with Joe Maddon. Mantuano is a recipient of the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: Midwest and The Chicago Tribune’s Good Eating Award, which honors achievement in the food and restaurant industry. Outside of the kitchen, Mantuano is often recognized for his participation on season two of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters.” Other projects include cookbook collaborations with Cathy Mantuano, a wine expert and former manager of Spiaggia. The husband and wife team authored “The Spiaggia Cookbook” and “Wine Bar Food.”

JOHN HOGAN IS A FIXTURE OF THE CHICAGO CULINARY COMMUNITY. Inducted into the Chef’s Hall of Fame – February 2018 He started his career at four-star Everest, Kiki’s Bistro and the Park Avenue Cafe. When he opened his own restaurant, Savarin, the Chicago Tribune named Hogan as one of the “Top 10 Chefs in Chicago” while Travel + Leisure honored Savarin with “America’s Top 50 Restaurants.” Esquire magazine also honored Savarin with “Best Restaurant of 1999.” Just as steakhouses exploded across the country, Hogan took the helm at Keefer’s when it launched in 2001, developing a signature menu of Chicago-style dishes inspired by American classics. At River Roast, Hogan is sharing his straightforward but unique brand of cooking and collaborating with Mantuano, a friend for more than 20 years.
