MATTHEW PETERSEN

Executive Pastry Chef - Newport Restaurant Group

While his name might be familiar to many as the Fan Favorite from Season 2 of Top Chef’s Just Desserts, it’s Matthew’s pastries that have garnered accolades while working at an eclectic mix of top restaurants: Morimoto in Philadelphia, DB Bistro in New York, and most recently at CityZen and Sou’Wester in DC’s Mandarin Oriental. But the rising star is a simple family man at heart: if he could have one last meal with anyone, it would be with his wife Laura; they’d make BLT's on fresh ciabatta bread with arugula salad with chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches for dessert. They currently live in Bristol with their two girls.
