At age 14, Chef Guerrieri became infatuated with the kitchen while working at Dante’s pizzeria on Long Island, New York. He established himself as a young restaurateur by his early 20’s, opening Mannino's -- a favorite stop for Hampton’s bound travelers. Soon after, Michael's Elegant Affairs opened, a catering company serving New York’s high society, and entertainment industry. A love affair with Portugal years later led Chef Guerrieri to open Mezzaluna Lisbon where he prepares gastronomic creations showcasing his artistic talents. Combining old fashioned Portuguese tastes, a splash of Italy and a touch of New York City, his latest venture in the heart of Manhattan, City Sandwich, provides affordable, personalized gourmet sandwiches for people on the go.
