Chef de Cuisine
Born and raised in nearby Allentown, PA, our Chef de Cuisine, Drew Parassio, had the desire to cook from a very young age. He graduated from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and studied in Rome and Italy's Amalfi Coast region. His first industry job upon returning to the States allowed him to learn process, supply and distribution at a family-owned bakery in New Jersey. In 2012, he joined Greg at Vernick Food & Drink as part of the opening team. He went on to become the restaurant’s first Chef de Cuisine. After six years working alongside Greg, Drew took the reins at Vernick Fish as Chef de Cuisine.
