Chef Bruno has cooked for royalty, presidents and at the wedding of Donald Trump and his second wife, Marla Maples.
"I wanted to give back something to the community," he said, because after a while the routine gets boring.

Chef Bruno said that hotel guests and a hospital patients deserve the same care. so he will spend time at all 22 Northwell Health hospitals in New York State to reach the executive chefs and staff how to cook fresh and healthier foods from scratch.
Northwell Health said that Chef Bruno is the first and only Michelin-star chef hired by a health care organization in the United States.
Chef Bruno said that all Northwell Health hospitals will be serving restaurant-quality food sometime in 2018. He will also hire talented chefs from the hotel and restaurant industry.
