Executive Chef Grasiani Costa stands out as uniquely dedicated. Born and raised in Brazil, Grasiani came to the States in 2004 and got his first job at Teatro as a dishwasher. Having worked at Teatro for over 11 years and in a variety of positions, Grasiani Costa knows the restaurant inside and out. Management immediately recognized Grasiani’s potential and within less than a month he became a line cook. After working multiple stations in the kitchen and having spent 9 years as the lead sauté cook, in 2014 Grasiani was offered the position of Sous Chef.
As Sous Chef to Executive Chef, Jeff Howe, Grasiani observed how Chef Howe placed high importance on the styling of dishes, the strict attention to detail and how he always used the best ingredients possible. Grasiani’s commitment to his role as Sous Chef also required him to manage the kitchen staff and train them on the techniques of the Teatro standard. In 2015 he accepted the role of Executive Chef.
As Executive Chef, Grasiani is looking forward to growing with the restaurant and delivering the high level of service that Teatro and the Columbus Hospitality Group has come to be known for.
