US: The Bowery Hotel in Manhattan has appointed Carlo Bigi as executive chef at Gemma, the hotel’s Italian trattoria.

Bigi was inspired to become a chef at an early age after growing up in the kitchen of his family's restaurant. He has held positions at multiple highly esteemed restaurants worldwide, including Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, an upscale Mediterranean-Italian restaurant in New York City's East Village; Casa Lever and Sant Ambroeus Restaurant on Madison Avenue; and a number of Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy and France. As executive chef of Gemma, Bigi will be responsible for overseeing the concept and design of the menu, hiring and overseeing restaurant staff, managing all on-site catering for private events booked on the Bowery Terrace and in Gemma's Wine Room, and ensuring that performance in the restaurant is consistent with The Bowery Hotel's dedication to first-rate service.

"Carlo is the perfect addition to The Bowery Hotel family," said GM Kirk Wilson. "His diverse background and ability to draw upon his Northern Italian roots will create a genuine Italian dining experience at Gemma."
