Meet the Chefs

Additional Chefs to be Added

Sacramento is home to innovative executive chefs and great dining options at our hotels and their restaurants. Whether it’s fresh, seasonal cuisine or flavorful steaks, you have many choices. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed sipping a specialty cocktail, glass of local wine, or a craft brew at a local hotel bar or its poolside patio. Attend the Sacramento Hotels Farm-to-Fork Showcase: Challenge of the Chefs to sample exceptional savory and sweet offerings created by our chefs. And, yes, there is a spirited competition to see which executive chef takes home the award this year's awards for Top Savory, Top Sweet and Top Plated.
