Tiburon-Belvedere, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Acclaimed chef George Morrone, best known for his roles in creating Aqua, Fifth Floor, and Redwood Park restaurants in San Francisco, and Boca in Novato, has partnered with the Corinthian Yacht Club of San Francisco as Executive Consulting Chef. The Corinthian Yacht Club, located in Tiburon-Belvedere, was established in 1886, and has a spectacular waterfront location. Its Grand Ballroom, with its sweeping views of San Francisco, is the location for many memorable private events, including weddings, corporate parties, and non-profit fundraisers. The Corinthian also announced that it has hired Joe Gentempo as Chef de Cuisine. Joe was most recently Chef de Cuisine at Hog & Rocks in the Mission District of San Francisco.
“The Corinthian has a long history of being a friendly, welcoming yacht club. The addition of George and Joe to our team takes our club to a whole new level, not only for our members, but for anyone who schedules an event in our Ballroom,” said Vice Commodore Mark Leonard. “George’s approach to food is perfect for us and for the private events held at the club. George’s emphasis is on fresh, creative, and approachable dishes, and of course highlighting seafood, which has long been George’s passion. We are honored to have George and Joe join our staff.”
For his part, George is excited to be a part of the long maritime tradition of the Corinthian Yacht Club. “Look, it’s an incredibly beautiful location, with a 126 year history, so it is a real pleasure just to be here in this physical location. Beyond that, I really appreciate how open and fun the Corinthians have been. The challenge of designing such a multi-faceted service reminds me of my days at Hotel Bel-Air and Campton Place. Joe and I love to cater the wonderful events we hold in the Ballroom. Plus, I want to participate in the excitement of the upcoming Americas Cup in a very direct way.”
The Corinthian Yacht Club dining room and bar is open to members and their guests and members of reciprocal yacht clubs. Following a long-standing tradition, the Ballroom is open to the public for private events for approximately 80 to 250 people.
