Mirko Paderno

Tastemaker

Chef Mirko Paderno is as Italian as Tony Soprano’s grandfather and since 1999 he’s graced LA’s culinary scene with Italian authenticity. Raised in Milan, Mirko perfected classic Italian recipes at Cesare Ritz School in Merano before landing a position at Four Seasons Milano. Mirko was offered a ‘magnifico’ opportunity to join Angelo Auriana with the opening of Officine BRERA—once a factory and now a stunning industrial space with serious Northern Italian eats. Mirko took position as Chef de Cuisine with gusto, and these days you can also find him at sister restaurant The Factory Kitchen.
