Chef Chris Miracolo spent his formative years building a love for being in the kitchen. From cooking with his family as a child to years of working as a pizza maker and line cook in high school, Miracolo starting paving his career early on.

After high school Miracolo went straight to work building his culinary knowledge. He spent time at Mark's Las Olas and helped opened Himmarshee Bar & Grille and Tarpon Bend in 1999 before leaving Florida and taking up positions at some of the top resaturants in Texas and Colorado.

He was then asked to head The Restaurant People’s venture “TRP Taste,” an intimate 26-seat culinary theater where they presented a series of “one of a kind” dining experiences.

In May 2019, Miracolo joined the Rapoport’s Restaurant Group team as the Executive Chef at Burt & Max’s, once again working with Rapoport’s corporate chef Patrick Broadhead. Miracolo refers to his style of cooking as globally eclectic. He carefully sources product, uses simplistic preparations and strives for perfect execution every time.
