About Our Executive Chef, Wayne Ricco
Chef Ricco aims to put a unique spin on sports venue cuisine that appeals to both casual diners and foodies looking for a higher-end experience. A 1980 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Ricco has spent over 30 years honing his skills at some of New Jersey and Manhattan’s most prestigious hotels, restaurants and country clubs, including the five-star Regent Wall Street. Most recently, he was the executive chef/owner of Maxwell’s 35 in Colonia, NJ. His stint as chef/owner of the Riverfront Café in Harrison, NJ from 1987-1995 garnered him 3.5 stars from the Star-Ledger, 3.5 stars from The Record and a Very Good from Valerie Sinclair of the NY Times.
Chef Ricco describes himself as an “American chef, through and through.” His cuisine is about using the freshest possible ingredients to create innovative, yet uncluttered recipes that blend techniques and flavors from around the world. Not necessarily luxury products, but ingredients at the height of their flavor: potatoes just out of the ground, berries right of the bush, line caught fish straight from the sea.
“If you start with the finest, freshest, purest-tasting ingredients, it is genuinely hard to go wrong,” Ricco noted. “Sophisticated cooking techniques and creativity are bonuses, but the foundation of truly fine cuisine is rooted in the foodstuffs themselves.”
Chef Ricco has been a long standing member of the American Culinary Federation and has received numerous medals and awards at culinary shows, including the International Geneva Association Show.
