An Arlington native, chef Gregory Boschetti spent much of his childhood surrounded by restaurateurs. His grandfather, who emigrated from Italy, worked his way up from a dishwasher, to management, to ownership of three successful restaurants in the area. Boschetti, for his part, gained his interest in culinary arts by baking assorted recipes that he found in his mother’s Betty Crocker cookbook at the young age of ten.
Since then, he’s acquired more than two decades of experience working in some of the area’s top kitchens alongside some of the city’s best chefs including Paul O’Connell at Chez Henri in Cambridge, Mark Thompson at Arlington’s Menotomy Grill and Tavern, Michael Scelfo at Alden & Harlow in Harvard Square and Tom Berry at Temple Bar on Mass Ave.
A graduate of the prestigious Johnson & Wales University, Boschetti is currently the Executive Chef at Menotomy. When he’s not in the kitchen, he enjoys traveling to destinations like Italy, Vietnam, Hawaii, Iceland and Denmark, and spending time with his wife Becky, also a chef, who he met during their tenure at Chez Henri.
