Chef Justin Grecco's reputation for taking local produce and transforming it into sumptuous, imaginative and amazingly good food will have you digging in! You’ll understand why this passionate chef decided to follow his culinary dream during travels to Italy … and name Roman Anthony’s after his young son.
Just over a decade ago, adventurous St. Paul native Chef Justin Grecco was a student struggling through college until one particularly moving meal in Florence. He tasted a dish that brought him to tears, and it was then that he realized his calling. Immediately upon returning to the United States, Grecco enrolled at Minneapolis' Le Cordon Bleu College, and his culinary career took off. In early 2010 he opened Roman Anthony's, a contemporary Italian restaurant named after his first born son. Since Grecco was first inspired in Italy to become a chef - this had been in the works for a quite a while. The Twin Cities' response has been outstanding as all the major TV stations invited Grecco too cook on their live, in-studio broadcasts. The Star Tribune even rated Roman Anthony's in the Top 5 New Restaurants "Outside the Cities" in 2010!
