Before starting Burke and Black, Nicole worked for over 15 years at restaurants in New York (Del Posto), and San Francisco (Quince, Gary Danko). She is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC and has held several positions within the industry including line cook, server, expeditor, and office manager.
The last few years Nicole has headed the reservations departments of two of San Francisco’s hottest restaurants, as well as working as a catering manager.
One day however, Nicole noticed a void in the marketplace. A dedicated service offering curated culinary and event planning options for corporate clients without in-house event staff was needed. She and her business partner’s penchant and joy in helping people have the best experience is how Burke and Black was born.
San Francisco is bursting with beautiful, organic produce and handcrafted artisanal products. This is never a bad thing but it can often leave you overwhelmed with choices. At Burke & Black we will curate, source, prepare and present. The only thing left for you to do is enjoy.
