Chef Ryan Denicola Named Zagat 30 Under 30

We’re excited to announce that Executive Chef Ryan DeNicola was named one of Zagat’s “Rock Stars Redefining the Industry.”

“DeNicola puts all of his experience — from his first job washing dishes in a Santa Ana restaurant to opening Son of a Gun as a line cook for Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo — to good use at Mozza’s meatier Hollywood sibling, where he’s continuing the whole-animal butchery and charcuterie programs and creating wood-fired masterpieces and seafood specialties. Simplicity is key. “I use a lot of fresh herbs, lemon, sea salt and an absurd amount of olive oil,” he says. “If you left me on an island with just these things, I’d probably just set up camp and start cooking.””
