NEW ORLEANS – Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans introduces Dario Montelvere as the Hotel’s new Executive Chef.
As a 21-year Four Seasons veteran, Chef Montelvere is well-versed in the brand and truly understands the value of the guest experience. Before bringing his talent to New Orleans, his career began at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney as a steward. He went on to contribute to the culinary operations at four other properties including Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica and Four Seasons Hotel Miami.
Throughout his culinary journey he has worked alongside the greats, including Four Seasons Hotel Sydney’s pioneering chef Serge Nasreau and Chef Lynn Crawford of Iron Chef America.
