Chef Jordan

The cafe concept has become a cornerstone of 10 Corso Como the world over, bringing lifestyle and food into the conversation with fashion, art and inspiration. Every element within the space, from the blown-glass lighting fixture to each swirl of pasta, is crafted with intention and shares a story.

The chef behind the simple, robust dishes presented at 10 Corso Como Restaurant & Café has spent years honing his skills in the kitchen, both here in the United States and in Italy, where he worked in restaurants in Spoleto and Florence. “The idea of building something where art would become a part of everyday life – get it off the walls, incorporate it with objects and create our own objects is still extremely integral for my work” says artist and co-founder Kris Ruhs.

Under Jordan Frosolone’s leadership, the culinary team at 10 Corso Como take pride in selecting the highest-quality seafood, meat, local produce and ingredients imported from artisanal producers in Italy to create irresistible Italian dishes that prioritize the best of the season’s natural flavors. Crafted in Milan and finished in a studio above the restaurant, each table setting, plate and dish enhance the meal and together with artwork, like  aquariums full of fantastical wire sea creatures, create an altogether unique and unforgettable experience.
