EXECUTIVE CHEF & OWNER

Daniel Strong has worked quietly in kitchens all over manhattan. Before starting Chickpea & Olive with Danielle Ricciardi, he was the sous chef of Dell'Anima, an Italian trattoria in Manhattan's West Village, where he directed the kitchen through everyday operations and developed dishes that gave praise to a heritage of regional cuisine. Daniel has since converted to a strict vegetarian diet, and as a result his food has transformed. In each dish he ensures that no flavor is muted, and every ingredient is used with purpose.

 

CEO

Danielle Ricciardi has worked in the restaurant industry for over a decade.  She has bartended, served, and managed at restaurants all around NYC and Chicago. Being Italian American, family and love meant handmade manicotti and gathering around the big pot of Sunday gravy.  When she was little, Danielle would help her mom in the kitchen, preparing huge family meals - never the least of which was the Christmas supper.  Her passion for food is a hard wooden spoon rooted in her soul. When she founded Chickpea and Olive, it was with the goal of binding her passion for food with compassion; Chickpea and Olive is the expression of peace and compassion through food.
