Ryan Poli On Way To Super Stardom?!
He's got A-Lister looks, a bad-boy personality and gorgeous media celebrity girlfriend.
So it was only a matter of time until Ryan Poli hit the big time.
The talented toque—who just recently left his post at Perennial and will oversee the upcoming Tavernita in Chicago and Miami—will be one of four chefs competing on Bravo's newest reality show, Rocco's Dinner Party, that's set to air this summer.
The show is hosted by celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito, and an Ultimate Insider tells 312DD that Poli is filming in New York City RIGHT NOW.
According to the official Bravo press release, the show "will be a self-contained competition series where a group of four highly skilled chefs will compete to put together the perfect evening for DiSpirito and his hand-picked celebrity guests each week. These chefs hail from all walks of lives—from restaurateurs to caterers to self-taught foodies—and the winner of each episode will be awarded with a cash prize.
"The chefs will be challenged to invent an appetizing menu and then execute it to perfection. But the food is only half the battle - they also will have to set the table and the mood to create an ambience that makes the dinner party guests want to stick around for seconds."
This is exciting news! Good luck, Ryan!
