Scott Andrews

Scott Andrews’s culinary passion began in 2003 while studying in Italy, learning the local Tuscan cuisine and visiting vineyards. In 2008 he left his environmental job in Seattle, WA to move to NYC and start working in restaurants. He has previously worked at Angelica Kitchen and Counter, and in 2011 started Stagionarsi (stagionarsi.com), a seasonal supper club offering a plethora of tasting courses to highlight the season and the local produce. Rooted in his Italian influences where the table of people is central, Stagionarsi’s name is taken from the Italian word for the seasons (stagioni), but is specific to food, meaning to season, to age, or to mature. It is a culinary endeavor that is always evolving and maturing and always giving enjoyment.
