George Morrone was born October 9, 1961 in Maywood, New Jersey and is an award-winning American chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author. He was the founding chef at the famous Aqua Restaurant in San Francisco, and famous chef, Michael Mina, was his protégé. He has also been chef at San Francisco restaurants, Fifth Floor and Redwood Park. Morrone is currently the executive chef at Boca Steak & Seafood in Marin County, California.
After graduating from the CIA in Hyde Park, New York, the foundation of his career started as sous chef for restaurateur Michael "Buzzy" O'Keefe and chef Charlie Palmer at the River Cafe in Brooklyn, New York. After the River Cafe, he moved out west to San Francisco to work as executive sous chef at the landmark Campton Place with chef and restaurateur Bradley Ogden. Morrone then got his chance at the top toque as the youngest executive chef for the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, where for 5 years he cooked for dignitaries and A-list celebrities that included Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Michael Jordan, Grace Jones, Pele etc while later opening for Madonna's luxury restaurant in the Hotel Delano in Miami, Florida. Morrone then returned to his San Francisco roots to open the legendary restaurant Aqua (where he mentored chef and restaurateur Michael Mina), and held dual roles as founder/co-owner and executive chef. It was at Aqua where he earned his first four star review for his innovative seafood creations, establishing him as one of the country’s great culinary talents. From Aqua, Morrone moved on to other prolific projects—including reuniting with Ogden at One Market Restaurant—before helping to create and open the award—winning Fifth Floor restaurant with Aabi Shapoorian. Fifth Floor, under George Marrone, received Wine Spectator's Grand Award and was listed as one of the top 20 restaurants in the United States. It was at this landmark restaurant, Morrone also met Julia Child and prepared for her a private dish in celebration of her 80th birthday. The instant accolades at Fifth Floor culminated in his second four-star review. Voted Chef of the Year respectively in 1992 and 2002, is the only Bay Area chef ever to be awarded four-stars twice, frequently featured in the PBS Series' Great Chefs, Morrone has fomented many of the region’s major culinary trends, and his sensibilities regarding flavor, technique, and aesthetics have influenced California’s culinary lexicon.
