Growing up as a member of a large Italian family, Chef Antonio (Nino) Martino’s earliest memories are of food & family celebrations and the joy surrounding them.
Chef Nino launched his culinary career as a cook at a busy, upscale restaurant in Rockland County, New York. Quickly finding his passion in the creative cauldron of the kitchen, Nino enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America, and became a Certified Executive Chef.
Prior to joining Waterview, Chef Nino spent twenty-five years with The Marriot Corporation in Manhattan as an Executive Chef in their fine dining restaurants. In addition to overseeing the culinary operations for clients such as CBS, Chef Nino led his team to victory in numerous culinary competitions and and served on the advisory board in charge of new culinary concepts and creations.
While Chef Nino has a deep love for New York’s singular food culture and his experiences there, he credits his years at Waterview as being the most rewarding of his career. Joining the team before the building was complete in 2004, Chef Nino has built a culinary culture rooted in tradition and excellence, but known for its ability to surprise and delight guest after guest.
With full freedom to exercise his creativity and talent, he is redefining private event dining with world-class, restaurant-style cuisine that truly sets Waterview apart.
