From ’21’ to the dear, departed Windows on the World, to his current longtime home at Porter House Bar and Grill, Chef Michael Lomonaco has made a career of finding new registers in the classics of American cuisine. Andrew sat down with his good friend (they collaborated on a book years ago) to discuss the trajectory of Michael’s career, how he finds creative expression and satisfaction in the traditional mode he cooks in, and the very personal Italian-American influence that’s found its way into his menu in recent years.
