Stephen Marcaurelle

A highly regarded chef in the Boston area, Stephen Marcaurelle brings his extensive culinary experience to create a wide range of creative Asian fare with global influence, as the Executive Chef of The Nautilus Pier 4 Boston location.

Raised in Dracut, Massachusetts, Marcaurelle’s love of cooking stems from his father, an avid home cook whose surges of culinary inspiration would allow the family to dine on leftovers for several days. After graduating high school, Marcaurelle knew it was time to spread his wings. At 17, he moved up to New Hampshire to attend the Atlantic Culinary Academy. After graduation, he moved to Boston where he landed his first cooking job at Pigalle, where he realized just how transcendent cooking could be. His time at Pigalle opened the door for him at The Pearl in Nantucket. Working at The Pearl for a handful of seasons, he made countless relationships, but none more influential than with Chef de Cuisine, Liam Mackey.

At 26, after working across the country for chefs such as Suser Lee, Ken Oringer and Jeffrey Buben, Marcaurelle returned to Nantucket to be the Executive Chef at The Boarding House. He would receive Best Chefs in America recognition as well as a feature from Star Chefs. Ready to start a family and set roots, Marcaurelle returned to Boston and took the reins at Tres Gatos, a Spanish tapas bar in Jamaica Plain. Over the course of five years he was able to transform Tres Gatos from a cozy neighborhood stop to a destination restaurant and Top 26 restaurant in all of Boston.

Rejoining Liam Mackey in 2020 to become the Executive Chef of Nautilus Boston, Marcaurelle is very excited to collaborate with the Nautilus founders to continue their vision for exceptional and one-of-a-kind food, cocktails and hospitality. He works to bring a neighborhood feel and character to Boston’s industrial Seaport District.

When not in the kitchen Marcaurelle loves going to the movies with his wife, Brittney, playing golf and ice hockey, taking his son, Rye, to Allandale Farm to see the cows and feed the chickens. He and Brittany welcomed their second child, Zoe, in November 2020.
