Meet Federico Genovese of Alloy Bistro Gourmet in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Federico Genovese.

Federico, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Born in Italy and raised in France. My culinary background is a fusion of both French and Italian cuisine. I spent also 6 years in Tunisia (North Africa) where I owned a restaurant. You will find some influence in my cooking from this side of the world. I have been living in Miami for the last 2 years since We open along with my brother “Alloy Bistro Gourmet”.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Being in the restaurant/ hospitality business is always a challenging world. It has never been a smooth road but I believe that’s where the best lessons are taught and also that’s where I grew the most personally and professionally.

Time-consuming and long hours of works have always been a priority over the personal life, This is maybe the most difficult part of it. Thanks that my passion for cooking overcome all those factors.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Alloy Bistro Gourmet story. Tell us more about the business.
“Alloy” like the literal definition represent a fusion of different elements to make it stronger and more efficient. The same thing applies with our concept and cuisine where myself, Claudio (my brother) and Luna (the third partner) joined forces to deliver our own personal lifestyle and culinary experience.

What set me apart from the rest, I believe it’s the cuisine I do it’s not a specific kind of cuisine, neither French or Italian. You could call it “an Author cuisine”.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I had both experiences of good luck and bad luck in Tunisia. I was “lucky” to open my own restaurant there where I experience immediate success and great business especially for the standard of the country.

My bad luck is that it didn’t last as long as I would due to political difficulty going at the time and actually still happening.
