About Chef Gina Marinelli & La Strega
Chef Gina Marinelli pulls her inspiration from a lifetime of culinary experience. With grandparents from Lake Como and Sicily, Marinelli started her journey with food in her family’s kitchen. From those early days, she went on to hone her skills with some of the best chefs in the industry, including Scott Conant, Michael Mina, and Shawn McClain. La Strega, meaning “witch” in Italian, is fueled by Marinelli’s desire to captivate her guests and take them on a very personal adventure across Italy. Inspired by the colors of the Italian countryside, La Strega’s decor features silvery greens, sun-bleached clays, and earthy tones. The intimate dining room boasts a mix of Italian marbles, velvet seating, and eclectic accents, with the open kitchen serving as the focal point. Diners will be front row as their meal is prepared in a sparkling marble and copper masterpiece. Across from the showcase kitchen, the cocktail bar will feature a completely custom glass facade from Sicis, a Ravenna, Italy-based glass company. Just outside the doors, guests will find the Loggia, where they can enjoy al fresco dining and cocktails. Featuring traditional plaster interiors with warm lighting, the space houses a “witch’s garden” designed by Marinelli to cultivate produce and herbs for La Strega’s seasonal dishes.
