Ever since bussing his first table at his parent’s coffee shop in Long Island, NY at the age of 10 he felt right at home in the restaurant business. Cooking alongside his grandmother with vegetables picked from the garden on Sundays helped the culinary bug get under his skin and by the age of 20 he was certain that he wanted to make cooking his life.
After spending some years under the tutelage of South Florida’s premier chefs at Norman’s in Coral Gables, Mark’s Las Olas & Himmarshee Bar & Grille in Fort Lauderdale, Miracolo then ventured west to Dallas to work at The Mansion on Turtle Creek under Dean Fearing, and Abacus & Jasper’s under Kent Rathbun before moving to Denver, Colorado to open Rhapsody at Clear Creek in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Upon his return to South Florida in 2005, he joined Max's Grille in Boca Raton as Executive Sous Chef until 2009 when he was selected to go back to his roots and take the helm at Himmarshee Bar & Grille, a restaurant he helped opened as a sous chef back in 1997. After two successful years there his passion for using all natural, locally sourced & sustainable fare led to him once again back to Palm Beach to collaborate with the wonderful farmers in Palm Beach County and open Max’s Harvest in June of 2011 to much acclaim earning Florida Trend’s Golden Spoon Award for “Best New Restaurant” & Broward-Palm Beach NewTimes’ “Best Restaurant in Palm Beach County” for 2012.
Chris rejoined The Restaurant People in 2013 to open S3.
