Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli is one of the most noted names in New England’s culinary scene. After an early start at his family’s East Coast Grill and working at The Back Eddy, he spent more than five years as general manager of Island Creek Oyster Bar, worked at Eastern Standard and Craigie on Main, and has since shifted into consulting on various Boston restaurant openings, including The Automatic, Pagu, and the reimagined Cafe ArtScience.
Currently, he’s in the process of opening a new restaurant, the highly-anticipated Alcove. Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli has been featured in Eater, Boston Magazine, NECN, and The Boston Globe.
