ABOUT:Campanaro was raised in Philadelphia with a culinary approach rooted in his Italian grandmother’s kitchen and honed at America’s top restaurants, He learned from some of the brightest chefs in the business, including Neil Murphy, Joachim Splichal, Jimmy Bradley, and Jonathan Waxman. In 2001, he opened The Harrison in Tribeca as executive chef, where he earned a two-star review from The New York Times. After that success, in 2006 Campanaro opened his dream restaurant, the West Village gem The Little Owl, to instant widespread acclaim (2 stars from The Times). It was Campanaro’s longtime friendship with another chef, Mike Price, that led to the creation of their management group Blackfoot Hospitality. They opened Market Table in 2007 (2 more stars!), the Clam in 2014, and The Mary Lane in 2021. In 2020, Campanaro published his first cookbook, Big Love Cooking: 75 Recipes For Satisfying Shareable Comfort Food, which features accessible recipes infused with Mediterranean flavors inspired by Joey's Italian-American family.
