Kyle Pintarelli - Executive ChefKyle Pintarelli opened Rockstar Catering Company in 2009, determined to change the general publics perception of catered food by offering menus focused on local and seasonal ingredients, bold flavors, and his own take on Progressive American Cuisine. Kyle's passion for the culinary arts began at a young age in his grandparents kitchen - watching, smelling, and tasting as they prepared traditional Northern Italian fare for the family every Sunday. Taking with him the influences of his grandfather's cooking, Kyle went to work as the Food + Beverage Director of the Windsor Gardens Hotel where the Palm Beach Post awarded his Wine Tasting and Food Pairing series as the Best Dining Event of the Year in 2009. With the smells and flavors from his childhood as constant inspiration, Kyle continued to expand on his craft, developing the signature style and innovations he showcases today. In 2012, Kyle along wit his wife Rachel, opened the Rockstar Kitchen + Tasting Room in Tequesta. Kyle can often be found at the tasting bar working up new recipes, creative plating, and inventive staging concepts, to deliver a culinary experience for his clients that is anything but ordinary.

Practiced in the art of maximizing local and seasonal ingredients, Phil cooks with American flare that is both simple and pure - a combination that fits seamlessly with Rockstar's Progressive American-style cuisine. Drawing Inspiration from his favorite chefs and restaurants, and with the ultimate goal of making sure that every client is truly happy, Phil strives for perfection in each dish that he executes. A graduate of Johnson and Wales University with an Associates in Baking + Pastry Arts and a Bachelors in Restaurant Management, Phil began his career as the Pastry Chef for Ovens of France in Woodbury, CT. He later joined Restaurant Associates as the Assistant Cafe Manager and worked his way up through the ranks to become GM of the Managed Services division. While Restaurant Associates was an incredible experience, Phil craved the excitement and sense of community he once embraced in the kitchen, which he found again with Rockstar.
