Nicco Muratore

Nicco was born and raised in Boston, where he got his start cooking at the restaurants inside the historic Fenway Park.

He was introduced to Middle Eastern cuisine by Chef Ana Sortun at Oleana Restaurant and Sofra. After three years at Sortun's restaurants, Nicco joined The Montagu Kitchen in London's Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Next up was a stint at Danny Meyer's historic Union Square Cafe in New York, before he returned to Boston to join Chef Steven Postal's team at the newly opened Commonwealth, where he spent five years working his way from Sous Chef to Chef de Cuisine. Nicco represented Commonwealth at the historic James Beard House in New York City on four occasions for themed dinners and Chef collaborations.

Nicco joined mamnoon as Chef de Cuisine in the summer of 2019. Since then, he has taken the menu to new heights and in 2022 took over the role of Mama Group Executive Chef, overseeing the culinary teams at mamnoon, mbar, mamnoon street, street eats, hanoon, and manna.

In 2022, he appeared on an episode of Food Network's Chopped and took home the victory in a pickle themed competition.

Nicco lives in Seattle with his wife, Sam, and their two dogs. Outside of the restaurants, you can find Nicco in the woods hunting for mushrooms, hiking, or skiing.
