Dewey LoSasso has clearly become one of the country’s top innovative celebrity chefs, having transformed numerous restaurants in New York City and along the trendy Biscayne Corridor. He has served as Donatella Versace’s personal chef and has delighted patrons of several of Miami’s leading restaurants, including The Forge Restaurant/Wine Bar, Schnebly Winery and Miami Brewing Company, LaTour, Pavillon Grille, The Private Foundlings Club, North One 10 and Tuscan Steak, to name a few. LoSasso was also the executive chef for the Lipton Tennis Tournament, now the Miami Open. While in New York, he brought the Hudson Hotel back to dining prominence. During his four-year tenure at The Forge, LoSasso led the rebirth of the iconic restaurant, creating modernized interpretations of classic dishes from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, emphasizing farm-to-table and ocean-to-table ingredients. His “Coffee, Steak and Eggs Dish” was selected by Esquire Magazine as one of the Top Dishes in the country.
Dewey has created dining experiences for the likes of Ron Wood, Bill Clinton, “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, Gloria Estefan, Joan Jett, Al Pacino among others. He has made appearances on the Food Network’s Chopped, South Florida Today Show, “the Chefs Challenge” TV Segment with CBS (Florida Emmy Award winning) and various other shows. He now joins the Bill Hansen Luxury Catering team to guide the culinary department as we grow to new heights.
“Whether it’s with a restaurant, hotel or a special event, I always like to think small on a large scale,” said LoSasso about his ability to custom-design a menu. “I’m always changing my menus based on the inspiration from a customer or a signature seasonal item. The key is to having that one-to-one relationship with the client.”
