Growing up in coastal New England, in an Italian family with roots in Sicily and Naples, Cliffe is most at home with classic flavors and fresh ingredients.
While on the hunt for the best quality meats for his guests at his flagship restaurant, Rosewood Kitchen Enoteca, he found there was no one offering the quality and craftsmanship he craved. So he opened the Butchery by Rosewood and set a new trend in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar starting a meat revolution focused on sustainability, traceability, and quality.
For more than 10 years, Cliffe has grown the Rosewood brand into one of the most recognized and respected hospitality groups in the city thanks to his commitment to quality, service and supporting sustainable and responsible farmers and food purveyors from across the country whenever possible.
Cliffe is an accomplished and internationally recognized chef and restauranteur, skilled butcher and baker. When he’s not in the kitchen at Rosewood Kitchen + Enoteca, you can find him at either at The Butchery by Rosewood, The Market by Rosewood, or in the kitchen at his newest restaurant, La Rosa.
