Executive Chef

Gabe McMackin

Executive Chef and Culinary Creative Director Gabe McMackin’s menu is thoughtfully sourced from respected producers and artfully composed to create journeys anchored in the present, celebrations of what’s local and seasonal in the Hudson and Harlem Valleys. It’s a perspective that won him a Michelin star in his first year of operating The Finch, his former Clinton Hill, Brooklyn restaurant. @gabemcmackin

Chef de Cuisine

Vincent Gilberti

Chef de Cuisine Vincent Gilberti — “Vinny” — began at Troutbeck in July 2020, and works closely with Gabe to implement our careful sourcing, production and execution. Vinny derives particular pleasure from his trips to local farms to pick up produce, foraging for ingredients in the wild, and from making our pasta from scratch. Before moving to Troutbeck, Vinny worked in several of Brooklyn’s most interesting and reputable kitchens, including Dover and Battersby with Joe Ogrodnek and Walker Stern, before joining Executive Chef Gabe McMackin at his Michelin-starred restaurant, the Finch. Vinny is a native of Carmel, NY.


Ariel Yotive

Though native to New York City, Ariel Yotive (@ariparadise) has called many places home, from South Carolina to Chilean Patagonia. Her passion for all things culinary is as expansive as her travels, including special interests in foraging, whole animal cooking, and her present obsession, baking. Having come to Troutbeck from her most recent tenure as baker in The Great Northern Food Hall of Grand Central Station, Yotive is committed to nurturing a sustainable regional food system, using as much local grain and flour as possible in all of her baked goods. Beware of Ariel’s prowess: she makes scones for people who say they don’t like scones.

Pastry Chef

Emma Isakoff

New Pastry Chef Emma Isakoff brings her appreciation for local sourcing and wine and spirit-pastry pairings to Troutbeck. A native of Washington, DC, Emma has worked at outstanding Southern properties, such as North Carolina’s Fearrington House, where — as Pastry Chef, Chocolatier, and Cake Designer — she enjoyed collaborating with visiting chef Benoit Blin from Le Manoir Quatre Saisons. Emma also was Pastry Chef at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach and Cake Designer at Carmella’s Kitchen in Charleston. Emma notes the warm hearths and welcoming team at Troutbeck as emblematic of her new northern chapter. We welcome her!
