CHEF Michael Marchitelli
A meal with Michael Marchitelli is as much about the fun as it is about the food. Chef Michael is a Crested Butte classic, armed with a collection of secret family recipes from his Italian grandmother. He began cooking at age 10 and opened his first professional culinary endeavor in Pennsylvania with his mother. It was a New Orleans blues bar. And with that, he fell in love. He came back to his culinary roots and has owned the Noodle for 17 years, where family recipes prevail, and where you will often find this “capo di tutti capi” in the kitchen, preparing meals with tradition, passion and a warm embrace.
