Chef Stephen Gallagher’s cooking career began humbly. During his freshman year of high school, Steve began a part time job washing dishes in a bakery. He soon realized that, although he did not want to be a baker, he was in love with food. Upon graduating high school, Steve attended the New York Technical Institute, where he studied culinary arts.
Steve has since worked at a number of local Long Island restaurants, including Star Boggs and The Jamesport Manor Inn. He has also traveled to the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he was the Chef de Cuisine at The Buccaneer Terrace Restaurant on St. Croix, and he moved to Colorado to work under Chef Bertrand Bouquin at The Summit Restaurant of The Broadmoor Hotel. In 2009, Steve began work for Eric Lamondo at his causal, food-focused family of restaurants. He began work as the Chef de Cuisine at Kitchen a Bistro, before becoming the Executive Chef of Kitchen a Trattoria. In November 2013, Steve purchased the restaurant from Chef Lamondo, and renamed it The Trattoria.
When not in kitchen, Steve and his wife, Jessica, enjoy taking advantage of the North Fork’s robust food and wine industry.
