A pioneer of modern Italian cuisine in America, Pino Luongo made his mark with Tuscan trattoria Il Cantinori and iconic restaurants Coco Pazzo and Le Madri. Luongo recently returned to the kitchen with the opening of Morso, where executive chef Tim Ryan (formerly of Picholine and Bouley) and sous chef Scott Burnett serve impeccably crafted Mediterranean fare.
