La Nef founders Mandy and Dylan Metrano have been visiting and working on Monhegan island for many years. They’ve been living year-round on the island for the last four years. Mandy is the teacher at the one-room schoolhouse and Dylan manages a cafe in the summer. They’re both artists and are heavily involved with the cultural and artistic communities on Monhegan. In late 2017, they conceived of La Nef as a way to create year-round work on Monhegan, while providing exposure to Monhegan artists through their packaging, and delicious treats for everyone who visits. Dylan learned the art of chocolate from Ecole Chocolat in 2018, and he and Mandy have been mentored from a few incredibly generous and helpful chocolate professionals throughout the year. They officially opened La Nef Chocolate in June 2018, and began wholesaling off-island in early 2019.
