Restaurant Team

Michael Rotondo, Chef de Cuisine

Before taking the helm at Parallel 37 in January 2013, Chef de Cuisine Michael Rotondo, trained with and worked alongside world-renowned Chef Charlie Trotter at his eponymous Chicago restaurant for eight years, working his way up the ranks to Chef de Cuisine and, ultimately, Executive Chef.

Raised in Weymouth, Mass., just south of Boston, Rotondo began his culinary journey cooking with family and friends, gaining a tremendous respect for the finest seasonal ingredients. He entered the professional field at the age of 15, working at a local restaurant in Boston, eventually graduating from the New England Culinary Institute in Burlington, Vermont. Rotondo then headed south to Palm Beach, Florida, where he worked at the Five-Star, Five Diamond Four Seasons Resort, experiencing a unique type of cuisine focusing on flavors from South Florida and Latin America. Passionate about global cuisine, Rotondo moved to Europe for two years and worked in multiple Michelin star restaurants, including a stint beside Paul Bocuse in France. From there, he moved back to the United States and began his tenure at Charlie Trotter’s. During that tenure in 2008, Michael received the “Most Promising Chef” award from chefs Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller after competing in the United States Bocuse d’Or, widely regarded as the epitome of culinary competitions worldwide. Working with the best possible ingredients, Rotondo crafts progressive, market-driven cuisine that is refined and creative without being overly fussy.

Mitchell Nordby, Sous Chef

Mitchell Nordby joined the team at Parallel 37 as Sous Chef at the beginning of 2013. Born and raised in Mankato, Minnesota, Nordby began his culinary journey working as a cook at Glacier Bay Lodge in the town of Gustavis, Alaska, where his job entailed fishing and catching live crabs for the menu. A year later, Nordby headed to New Zealand to work at the country’s premier luxury resort, Huka Lodge where he met his mentor, property manager Mark Wouters who taught him the importance of wine, horticulture and the many important aspects of hospitality that are necessary to each guest’s individual experience. He was soon named Junior Sous Chef and after three years he once again set out to travel the world, working in impressive restaurants including Attica in Australia, Noma in Denmark and De Liberje in the Netherlands. During this time, Nordby’s philosophy on food shifted and he began to see every ingredient as a whole, with a unique flavor profile and an important role to play in each dish. Three years later, Nordby joined the team at the eponymous Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago where he worked alongside then Executive Chef Michael Rotondo, successfully maintaining two Michelin stars for two years.

Andrea Correa, Pastry Chef

Originally from Medellín, Colombia, Pastry Chef Andrea Correa’s passion for pastry arose as a child looking at photos and cookbooks about desserts. After receiving formal training in classic pastry at The French Pastry School in Chicago, Ill., Correa traveled to Europe and launched her culinary career at Noma, a two star Michelin restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark, named “Best Restaurant in the World” by Restaurant magazine. After a life-changing year at Noma, she moved back to the United States to work at Charlie Trotter’s eponymous kitchen in Chicago where she met Michael Rotondo, now Chef de Cuisine at Parallel 37. From there, Correa continued to travel the globe, cooking and honing her skills in world-renowned restaurants including El Bulli in Spain as Assistant Creative Chef and Iggy’s in Singapore as Chef de Partie before returning to Chicago as opening Sous Chef at Yusho. However Correa couldn’t help but dream about getting back into pastry, and when she got a call at the beginning of 2013 from Chef Michael Rotondo to join the team at Parallel 37, she couldn’t pass it up.

Since opening, Parallel 37 has received numerous awards for its cuisine, decor and dining experience including the following:
