Chef Andrew Cattaneo


"I began as a Line Cook.  After a year of commitment, passion, and hard work I was promoted to a Sous Chef.  A few years later I was recognized again and promoted to an Executive Chef.  And for the past 4 years I have been a Regional Chef.  I am very proud to be employed for fifteen of the last twenty years here at McCormick and Schmick’s.  I owe it to myself and every other employee to make my contribution count so they, too, may find their opportunities and successful employment relationship, as I have."
