Michael Romano, Executive Chef

A native of West Palm Beach, Florida, Chef Michael Romano’s passion for cooking started in his teens. He often spent time in the kitchen with his father and got his start in the industry as a busboy at a small Italian restaurant. 

As Executive Chef at Rapoport’s Restaurant Group’s waterfront concept, Deck 84, Chef Romano has proven his dedication to the craft and his passion for food. His approach to cooking is influenced by his Italian roots and love for Mediterranean and Caribbean cuisine but in the end his philosophy is to keep it simple, letting the flavors and fresh ingredients shine. Catering to Deck 84’s prime location, Chef Romano uses fresh seafood, along with meat and locally sourced produce delivered daily to create a variety of crowd-pleasing dishes.


Bo Hammett , General Manager/Managing Partner

With his enthusiastic leadership and experienced hospitality background, Bo Hammett skillfully guides the team at Deck 84 as the Managing Partner and General Manager. Hammett graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors in Business Administration and learned the true art of customer service during his hospitably internship at Walt Disney World.

A go-to hot spot in Delray Beach for visitors and locals alike, Deck 84 is always thriving with activity any night of the week. “I set the tone. We go 100 MPH at Deck 84 and we don’t even stop the car to change the tire,” states Hammett who’s philosophy is the “speed of the leader, is the speed of the pack.” Born and raised in Arizona, Hammett worked in the restaurant business since he was 16.

It's like being on stage every day.”
