Director of Operations

“All passions rationalized or controlled become art: gastronomy more than any other passion is sensitive to all our senses. In my abstract art of gastronomy spontaneity inspires invention... a clean kitchen is the canvas, fresh ingredients are the paints and hands are the brushes. When it comes to the art of food I have always gone my own way and not followed the trends but started the trends.

Now bring to this tableau the most splendid achievement of all... the constant striving to surpass guest expectations and to be worthy of your own approval because my artistry is to have customer service that is not just the best but legendary. That’s the full experience of the art of food!!”

Executive Chef

This big universe of artful food… that is what impassions me. It starts in my head... move to my soul and then into my hands where I create the food that gives me intense emotions every single time. As the beautiful colors flow on the plate and the aromas fill the kitchen I know that my guests will leave a unique “out of the box” food experience... Bold flavors, colors and innovation is my food passion. Food to art, art to food!

Sous Chef

For me cooking is a creative outlet. Some people paint, others write - I like to create magic on a plate. No two days as a chef are ever the same and it’s a rush to create food that meets the needs of each individual customer and puts a smile on their face.

Stephanie Gueganno

Director of Food Service

Immersed from an early age in the family restaurant in Brittany, France, it was expected that our customers would be provided with the best experience for each part of the meal.

This was followed by travelling around the world which have strengthened my passion for the art of food.

This passion originates from a love of food products, the many possibilities of what can be done with them, to make them sublime; but mostly the knowledge of sharing emotions.
