Michael Voltaggio

Voltaggio Brothers' Steakhouse - Washington D.C.

Michael Voltaggio is the owner and chef of Los Angeles’ artisanal sandwich concept Sack Sandwiches with locations in West Hollywood and LAX’s Tom Bradley International. With his brother, chef Bryan Voltaggio, Michael is also the chef and partner in the Voltaggio Brothers Steak House at MGM National Harbor, and the fast-casual concept STRFSH, showcasing grilled sustainable-fish sandwiches in Santa Monica. Beginning his career at age 15, Michael earned the prestigious Greenbrier apprenticeship at age 19 and went on to helm the kitchens at Dry Creek Kitchen and The Bazaar by José Andrés.

Celebrated for having reinterpreted a new class of finer dining at his now-closed restaurant ink.—which received the title of GQ’s Best New Restaurant in America 2011—Michael has been recognized as a Food & Wine Best New Chef in 2013, won season six of Bravo’s Top Chef, and hosted the Travel Channel series Breaking Borders.

The brothers are now working on a third project—Monger by The Voltaggio Brothers, located at Downtown Miami’s highly-anticipated food hall, Central Fare.
