Chef Philip Sireci believes that cooking and music share a lot in common, and he has the experience to back his theory up. Before finding his way to the kitchen, Chef Sireci worked as an audio engineer and a guitarist with aspirations to be the next Eric Clapton. “Creating menus that satisfy a person’s five senses is like composing a song. Cooking and music require similar cadence of creativity”. Chef Sireci comes to us from New York City where he led the kitchen at @fineandrarenyc and @theflatironroom. He lands on Nantucket alongside his wife Marla and their adorable dog, Mona Lisa. ...

We are glad Nantucket beckoned him here and can’t wait to welcome him to The Nantucket family!
