Two of the most familiar faces at The Nantucket Hotel belong to Carlos and Fulya Castrello. Carlos and Fulya have been an integral part of our family for ten years and the friends they’ve made along the way are a testament to their deep involvement in the Nantucket community and the energy they devote to making everyone’s stay at The Nantucket a special one.

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. ...
