Nick Torno

The Atlantic Room's Chef de Cuisine Nicholas (Nick) Torno discovered the love of cooking by watching his grandmother’s every move in her kitchen. He eventually started preparing family dinner a few nights each week. Since graduating from Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, he's sharpened his culinary skills and become an expert on the unique characteristics of every variety of fish and shellfish served in Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s premier seafood restaurant.  He explains, “I'm always inspired by the infinite possibilities of seafood”.
