As Executive Chef here at The Garden City Hotel, it is my pleasure to lead our acclaimed culinary team and provide guests with a classic steakhouse experience at Polo Steakhouse and first-class catering for celebrations and events.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to cook all over the world, even for the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinburgh. However, as a native of the South Shore of Long Island, nothing means more to me than having the opportunity to come back home and serve the guests at our iconic address.

At Polo Steakhouse, we focus on serving the top 1% of USDA prime grade steak in the country and work with the top regional purveyors to ensure that the best resources are utilized.

I also believe that our guests deserve to have a dining experience that not only is memorable for the great food, but for the great service and atmosphere as well. We work hard to provide a level of excellence that will make it an easy choice to come back again and again.

It is an honor for me to prepare an outstanding and rewarding culinary experience for every guest. I look forward to welcoming you in our warm and inviting dining room where your satisfaction is our number one priority.

My very best wishes,Chef Michael
