Prior to opening the restaurant, the chef won the first season of Food Network's "Chef Wanted," and has worked with high-profile names including The Rolling Stones. At Primo, he offers a menu of classic and modern Italian fare from various regions with an emphasis on sustainability. Rib-eye steaks, for example, are sourced from Good Earth Farms and finished in cinnamon butter, whereas traditional pasta dishes, such as towering lasagna and roasted-chicken alfredo, are made with organic pasta.
