Chef Steve Samson

Samson grew up spending summers in Bologna, Italy, his mother’s hometown, where life centered around the dining room table. After graduating from New York’s Institute of Culinary Education, he worked at various Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Italy before returning to Southern California in 2009, where he opened the award-winning Pizzeria Ortica in Orange County. In 2011, Samson opened Sotto in Los Angeles, which earned immediate acclaim as Los Angeles Magazine’s #1 Best New Restaurant and one of Esquire Magazine’s Best New Restaurants in America. Rossoblu is the multiyear recipient of the Michelin Guide's Bib Gourmand, the Los Angeles Times Annual 101 Best Restaurants and for 5 years straight was listed on Eater LA's 38 Essential Restaurant list since opening in 2017. It's been a critical darling since the late revered food critic Jonathan Gold listed it as a top ten Los Angeles restaurant after only being open one year.
