SEAN K. TENER

Sous Chef

Sous chef Sean Tener has had the advantage and the pleasure of spending most of his career in the kitchen alongside Nick Stefanelli. Their friendship and familiarity has been a boon to Masseria from the beginning, creating a welcoming atmosphere and ensuring that the kitchen runs like a well-oiled machine: one that’s amped up on creativity, adrenaline, and a shared love of the Italian classics and modern, inventive culinary riffs.

The Maryland native is a 2008 graduate of L’Académie de Cuisine, working at Sonoma on Capitol Hill before joining Stefanelli to help open Bibiana Osteria downtown, where the team’s outstanding Italian cuisine won continual acclaim over the course of five years.
