About Tony Ferrari

Tony Ferrari is the co-founder of San Francisco‚Äôs Hillside Supper Club. Working with his culinary partner Chef Jonathan Sutton, Tony maintains at Hillside a strong commitment to sustainability and locally sourced ingredients. Also crucial to the Hillside experience is the notion that food is a social occasion, something to be shared and savored with others.  

Born in Cincinnati and a graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Florida, Tony was most strongly influenced by Chef John Suley while working at the Ritz Carlton in Miami. He has travelled extensively during his career, working with Michelin-starred chefs, holistic farmers, and artisanal producers all around the world. But Tony fell in love with the Bay Area and is enthusiastic about bringing to San Francisco diners the range and depth of his varied culinary experiences when they dine at Hillside.
