Chef Patrick Tennaro, the proprietor and Executive Chef of the Old Post Tavern, intends to carry this tradition forward.
After twenty years of hard work in some of Manhattan's best-known Steak Houses, he's brought his vision and some talented professionals to fill a niche that has long been ignored in Fairfield, the need for a friendly, informal place that serves top of the line seafood, steaks and meats that have been carefully selected and skillfully cooked.
Chef Tennaro received a Bachelors of Science degree from University of Hartford. He then furthered his education with a degree from the Culinary Institute of America.
While earning his degree in culinary arts he studied under Terrance Brennan from the renowned New York City restaurant Picholine. Patrick also studied under David Pasternack from famed restaurant Esca. After training in both front and back of the house and receiving his degree from CIA, he joined the team at Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group and it's premier steakhouse, Maloney and Porcelli.
