Sommelier Steve Morgan, Formento's Chicago

Somm Steve Morgan On NYC, Alinea to His Current Gig at Formento’s in Chicago


Hear Steve Morgan talk about his challenging journey from Del Posto and Tribeca Grill in New York City, back to Chicago for an all-star stint at Alinea and now, on the opening team at Formento’s  in Chicago.  Now, at a dining room with over 150 seats, along with private dining, Morgan is returning to a style of dining he feels is more accessible. He waxes poetically about being a true part of a Chicago neighborhood, styles of service and working with customers who might come in several times each week.
