Chef Anthony Bianco

Executive Chef

Since the day he could begin working, Anthony always felt at home in a kitchen and worked in various restaurants while pursuing a degree in mathematics at West Chester University. While at West Chester, he realized that the kitchen was where he was meant to be.

In 2007 Anthony enrolled at Harrisburg Area Community College and trained at the Hilton Harrisburg and our sister restaurant, Bricco. He eventually became sous chef of the Hilton and began to develop his style of cuisine for The Golden Sheaf, continuing the long tradition of providing AAA-rated four Diamond cuisine to its patrons and in 2012, added a DiRoNA award to the restaurant’s long list of accolades. As Executive Sous Chef, he successfully launched the Harrisburg Hilton’s latest restaurant endeavors – Ad Lib Craft Kitchen & Bar and 1700 Degrees Steakhouse.

In November 2020, Bianco became Executive Chef at Hilton Harrisburg, overseeing the culinary operations for both onsite restaurants and Hilton's catering facilities.
