Executive Chef Michael Sichel
A New York native and first-generation American, Michael Sichel developed a love of food and passion for cooking from his Italian mother who had immigrated to New York by way of Reggio Calabria, the coastal city in southern Italy. For Sichel, home was in the kitchen, where he created his earliest childhood memories immersed in the rich heritage, ingredients, and family-style cooking his mother and grandmother brought to the table.
Sichel has been featured on the Travel Channel's Food Paradise, in addition to participating as a competing chef in Bravo TV's 2012 Top Chef: New Orleans. He has also been a featured guest chef at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival.
Chef Sichel's culinary style is rooted within his coastal heritage, believing you are what you learn. Sichel utilizes the ingredients from the environment around him to create fresh, elevated dishes that are indulgent in flavor and beautifully presented. Passionate about the quality and art of food, Sichel brings his impeccable tastes, management technique, and hospitable nature to Gabrielle.
