Daniel has been on a quest for good flavor and good food for as long as he can remember. Growing up with a mother who did not enjoy cooking, Daniel looked to his Calabrian grandparents for culinary inspiration. At ten years old he called up his grandma and asked “how do you cook pasta”, and that was the beginning of his culinary career.
At age 14, Daniel lied about his age in order to get his first job at Wags. That job launched him into the Chicago restaurant world, and he has never looked back. In 2006, Daniel left his job as an Executive Chef to join a start up and help start Chicago’s first LEED Certified Organic QSR as their Corporate Chef/Director of Nutrition. Building on the knowledge he gained from that opportunity, he went on to co-own and manage a gluten free, organic, full service restaurant in Naperville, IL.
Decades of experience in the restaurant industry coupled with a passion for good food led Daniel to create his newest concept, The Eating Well. He hopes to use his experience, passion and knowledge to share good, clean, and local food with everyone. Daniel wants us all to “Say No to Food on Drugs! ”
