PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL. (Jan. 13, 2017) – After a dramatic $30 million transformation, the newly unveiled Sheraton Bay Point Resort – Northwest Florida’s newest resort destination nestled along the historic St. Andrews Bay – announces Shane Miller as its new Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage. From his very early days of learning the secrets of a perfect New Orleans roux in his “Maw Maws” kitchen to celebrated chef with winning appearances on Food Network’s® Cutthroat Kitchen and Guy’s Grocery Games, Chef Miller now brings his bold flavors and diverse experience from around the US to the dining portfolio at the Sheraton Bay Point Resort. Venues range from casual fine dining in the Resort’s TIDES Restaurant to multiple waterside dining experiences.

“After an extensive nationwide search, we identified Chef Shane as a perfect fit for our redefined resort.” says Pat Shimon, General Manager at the Sheraton Bay Point Resort. “Shane brings the perfect mix of intensity and diversity to his cooking. He’s already wowing guests with his innovative dishes and notable presentation.”

After serving in the U.S. Navy, Miller attended The Culinary Institute of New Orleans. Throughout his diverse career, he’s worked on large scale events such as Super Bowl XXVI, U.S. Formula One Grand Prix and film production catering teams. Prior to signing on with the Sheraton Bay Point Resort, Chef Miller served as Area Executive Chef with Sodexo’s Leisure Division, where he oversaw food & beverage operations at the Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, the Winstar Casino in Norman Oklahoma, and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

“I’m returning to my Gulf Coast roots here at this grand southern resort”, says Chef Shane Miller. “My passion for the tastes found down on the Louisiana bayou and the abundance of fresh local seafood here are echoed in the menus I create for the resort restaurants and within our group and catering offerings.”

Sheraton Bay Point Resort is nestled along the historic St. Andrews Bay in Panama City Beach, FL. Anchored by 36 holes of golf, including the only Nicklaus Design course in Northwest Florida, Sheraton Bay Point Resort creates a personalized coastal experience with the highest standard of hospitality. With a modern new design, five distinctive resort dining options, more than 60,000 sq. ft. of group space, and a full service spa, the 320-room re-imagined, wellness-focused resort is rich with amenities, including a private bay beach, three pools, watersports, boating and tennis. The first Starwood Hotels & Resorts property in the region, Sheraton Bay Point Resort is managed by nationally recognized operator Crescent Hotels & Resorts.
