For some, running a restaurant is a business. For us, it is our calling. Our passion for food and fine dining comes first, business second. We are a chef-driven restaurant. For you, that means fine dining at its best. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable culinary experience.
Jacob Glowacki is the executive chef at Marcella’s Ristorante, Pizzeria and Wine Bar in the Short North.
Glowacki has risen up in the cooking ranks through Cameron Mitchell Restaurants in Ohio with an intensive 80-hour internship during high school. After graduation, he was offered a position at Cap City Fine Diner and Bar. In 2011, Glowacki transitioned to Marcella’s in Polaris, Ohio as a line cook. In 2015, he transferred to Marcella’s in Columbus’ Short North neighborhood, gaining valuable experience as a supervisor and sous chef and then executive chef at the restaurant. Glowacki opened the third Marcella’s location in Denver, CO, in September 2017 as the executive chef before making his way back to our Short North location.
Growing up, Glowacki watched Julia Child and fell in love with food, cooking and the restaurant and hospitality industry.
When he isn’t cooking, he enjoys spending time outdoors, barbecuing, watching Columbus Blue Jackets hockey, and visiting restaurants in the area.
