Nicholas Forrester got his start in the hospitality industry with the James Beard Award-winning Garces Group. He developed a passion for food, beverage and a high quality of hospitality as the Service Manager with three of Iron Chef Jose Garces’ most distinguished Philadelphia restaurants; Tinto, Distrito and Amada. Nick’s career accelerated through other Garces-owned establishments including positions as Beverage Manager at now-shuttered Chifa and Food & Beverage Manager at the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs, CA. In June 2013, Forrester returned to the East Coast for an opportunity with James Beard Award-winning chef, Tony Maws, at his more casual establishment in Somerville, The Kirkland Tap and Trotter. He earned a reputation in the Boston culinary scene for his skills in management, food and beverage menu development and creative marketing programs, which led him to Ken Oringer’s Uni where he took over as General Manager, right in time for the restaurant’s expansion.
