5 Minutes with Nick Centolanza, Dining Services Director

Brightview Tenafly Chef Nick

"I'm proud to create a wide variety of home-style specials that I know our residents will love," says Chef Nick Centolanza, Dining Services Director at Brightview Tenafly in Tenafly, New Jersey.

Nick got his start as a young boy in a family Italian restaurant, and, while that is where his culinary heart will always belong, his 35-year career has provided exciting opportunities.

Nick has run some of the most exclusive country clubs in Westchester, New York, Wellesley, Massachusetts, and Phoenix, Arizona, where he spent many years as Executive Chef at Moon Valley Country Club.

In the past 13 years, he has opened three successful restaurants as sole proprietor or as a partner.

Nick joined the team at Brightview Tenafly in August, 2016.
