Michael Arcomone brings a wealth of culinary experience and passion to his position as Executive Chef at the United Center. Michael is thrilled to lead the kitchen of the "Madhouse on Madison" and strives to bring fresh flavors and innovative twists on dishes, while keeping true to fan favorites and Chicago flavors.
His 12-year career with Levy began at one of the company's longest-term partners – the Arlington Park race track. Michael started at the Trackside Restaurant at Arlington Park, a place he'll always consider home "turf." After his start at Arlington, Arcomone was promoted to Executive Chef at Boomers Stadium, home of the Schaumburg Flyers baseball team, and served as the Executive Chef at Ravinia Festival for three years before traveling back to Arlington Park. He also served as an Area Chef for Levy, traveling to various sports and entertainment locations in a region to supervise and support culinary operations.
Michael has participated in several high-profile facility openings for Levy including the Pepsi Center, Conseco Fieldhouse and Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Chef has also supported Levy at a number of major events including the NBA All-Star Game, World Series, MLB All Star Game, Super Bowls, Ryder Cup, the Kentucky Derby, Big 10 Tournament, Olympic Swimming Trials and the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals.
Prior to joining Levy, Michael spent time in the kitchen at Harry Caray's and Rosewood restaurant in Rosemont, IL. Originally from Philadelphia, he has made Chicago his home for the last 21 years.
