Nina Compton has been promoted to Chef de Cuisine at Scarpetta, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s Italian restaurant where she was part of the opening team with chef Scott Conant.
A native of Saint Lucia and graduate of The Culinary Institute of America (2001) in Hyde Park, Nina began her professional journey at Daniel in New York City, working and learning alongside Daniel Boulud and Alex Lee. After moving to Miami, she worked alongside South Florida’s top toques including Norman Van Aken at Norman’s and Philippe Ruiz at Palme d’Or.   
 Chef Compton rose from Sous Chef to Executive Chef of Casa Casuarina, a private club and intimate boutique hotel in Miami Beach before joining the Scarpetta team. “Under the direction of Scott Conant, Chef Compton will surely execute all the exciting things in store for Scarpetta in 2012," said Jeff Klein, Vice President of Food & Beverage at Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

Scarpetta opens daily for dinner at 6 p.m. . Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. (305) 674-4660;
