Executive Chef and Partner, Porter House Bar and Grill, Center Bar & Hudson Yards Grill

Michael Lomonaco is the Chef/Partner of the highly successful Porter House Bar and Grill and cocktail lounge Center Bar, both located in the Time Warner Center, as well as the soon to open Hudson Yards Grill in Hudson Yards. A veteran of the New York restaurant scene, Michael has helmed some of NYC’s most iconic kitchens including ‘21’ Club, Windows on the World, Wild Blue, Noche, and Guastavino’s. A well-known face to television audiences, Michael hosted “Epicurious” and “Michael’s Place” on Travel Channel and Food Network, and makes regular appearances on The Today Show and The Chew. He has published two cookbooks, The ‘21’ Cookbook and Nightly Specials. 

Deeply dedicated to community support and charitable causes, Michael co-founded the Windows of Hope Family Relief Fund in the wake of September 11, 2001. He also actively participates in fundraising events that benefit important and worthy causes throughout the city, including City Harvest and The Food Bank of New York. 

In 2016, Porter House Bar and Grill celebrated their 10th anniversary in the Time Warner Center. To mark the occasion, Lomonaco oversaw a cosmetic redesign and relaunch, bringing modern finishes to the timeless space. The following year, the restaurant was awarded “Absolute Best Steakhouse in New York” by New York Magazine, a title they were awarded again in 2018. 

In March 2019, Michael opened a new concept called Hudson Yards Grill, expanding his culinary footprint to New York’s newest neighborhood.
