It all started when...
Long before opening his first restaurant, Antonio Morichini completed culinary school in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. He began his career in the seaside town of Chiavari in Liguria, working with the freshest fish and the traditional food of that region. Eventually, he returned to his native Rome as a sous chef and chef de cuisine to work in many renowned Michelin-starred restaurants, including Il Convivio Troiani, Glass Hostaria, and Acquolina.
In 2008, Antonio arrived in New York and spent several years as an executive and corporate chef in various restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Westchester. Finally, in 2014, he opened VIA VAI to express his unique vision of authentic Italian cuisine.
