Chef André trained at The French Culinary Institute in New York and went on to work in some of New York’s leading kitchens with some of the best chefs in the world.  Among them: DB Bistro Moderne, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Perry Street Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon in the Four Seasons Hotel.  Most recently he was the Executive Chef of Event Operations at his alma mater where he oversaw the creation of a world-class Catering and Private Events Division.  He was honored to be selected as Guest Chef for the prestigious James Beard House for New Year’s Eve, and won The Food Network’s cooking competition, “Chopped.”

Chef André brings together his love of the arts with his passion for cooking and hospitality.  He will be creating a market driven contemporary bistro menu that will include ingredients sourced from all over the world.  Richard Frankel, one of the partners of 54 BELOW said, “We are extraordinarily excited to have Chef André leading our culinary team. We are certain that with his skills, imagination and leadership qualities he will build a world class dining experience for guests to enjoy along with the great Broadway themed entertainment we will be presenting in a relaxed, convivial and stylish atmosphere.”   

Chef André said, “I have been connected to the performing arts all my life and the chance to join the 54 BELOW creative team as Executive Chef is a dream come true.  Collaborating with producers and designers of this caliber is an extraordinary opportunity.” 

When asked about what guests can expect at 54 BELOW Chef André replied, “The totality of our guests’ experience is paramount to me; our team will make sure that we fulfill our vision of hospitality from the moment a reservation is made until the last note is played. The performers we have scheduled are extraordinary and I plan on creating a dining experience that matches the brilliance of the stars we will have on stage.”
