Bio

At the age of 15 while working as a dishwasher, Riccardo Bilotta caught the eye of a restaurant owner who admired his work ethic and way around the kitchen. His suggestion that Riccardo go to culinary school prompted Riccardo to enroll in the Centro Turistico Alberghiero I.A.L in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy, where he got his diploma in the culinary arts.
 
Riccardo's culinary career has taken him through some of the best-known establishments in Europe and America, including two Michelin starred Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole, Italy, Three Michelin starred El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona, Spain (nominated number one best restaurant for 3 years) La Broche in Madrid and most recently Soho House Group and A Voce Columbus with one Michelin star, acclaimed restaurants in New York, where he served as Executive Chef.
 
His refined, modern New American and Mediterranean dishes combine classical and innovative techniques and the finest seasonal ingredients, a style that he plans on bringing to his newest position as Executive Chef at The Columbia Tower Club.
