New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
New York (October 10, 2012) – The menu at the top is about to get a fresh infusion of flavor, courtesy of the Beekman Tower Hotel and its newest Executive Chef, James Brett Buehler. The Manhattan hotel is proud to welcome Buehler as its kitchen leader at the Top of Tower Restaurant.
With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Buehler has built a successful career as Executive Chef in some of Colorado’s finest establishments. Trained at The Culinary Institute of America in New York, he started as a sous chef at the five-star, five-diamond Broadmore Resort in Colorado Springs. From there, he progressed to his first Executive Chef position with the Compass Group at Johnson Wales University in Denver, running four campus operations that included all catering, special events and banquets.
This talent for multitasking and for managing the complete dining experience for multiple clientele at once has served Buehler well over the years. As he has honed his craft, he has served as Executive Chef in several key restaurants throughout the state of Colorado, most recently as Executive Chef over both Del Frisco’s and Sullivan’s fine restaurants in Denver.
Chef Buehler plans to bring his in-depth knowledge and passion for the culinary arts to New York by honoring the guest palate with his unique, progressive style of American cuisine. At the Top of Tower, he intends to fuse the classic American menu with French technique and Asian flare.
