"We are thrilled to build upon Chef Perez's impressive tenure at Hotel Vitale and Americano," said Area Managing Director Antoine Berberi. "This is a natural development given that Chef has played an increasingly significant role in everything from menu development to event execution over the past few years. We are excited for him to expand his influence over Hotel Vitale's entire culinary program."
Perez began as a sous chef at Americano in 2007, assuming an active and influential role in the creation of dishes over the years. At Americano, Perez pays particular attention to the turning of the seasons, crafting unique and flavorful dishes based on local produce available from area purveyors, as well as from the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market located at the historic site just steps from Americano's kitchen.
No stranger to the vibrant Bay Area culinary scene, Perez worked in the kitchens of several well-known San Francisco restaurants, including Absinthe, Firefly, and The Liberty Café in Bernal Heights, before joining the team at Hotel Vitale and Americano. He spent five years at the acclaimed San Francisco institution Zuni Café, under the tutelage of Chef Judy Rodgers, learning a unique approach to food, attention to detail, and a seasonal style of cooking that inspire him to this day. A San Francisco native, Perez graduated from the Hotel & Restaurant Program at City College of San Francisco in 1995.
