LOCALE Magazine: Top Chefs in San Diego- Loews Coronado Executive Chef Chris Aguirre

Introducing the Top 5 Hotel Chefs in San Diego

San Diego, CA - February 2, 2017

Executive Chef Chris Aguirre: Loews Coronado Bay Resort

Chris Aguirre: I draw my inspiration from everyday life and my surroundings. I am lucky enough to work just steps from the ocean and the bay. Fresh seafood plays a big role in our cuisine. San Diego also lends itself to amazing farmers with the best produce and artists that thrive on thinking outside the box.

Q: What gets you excited before each service at the restaurant?

CA: The quiet time when the line is set and the team is ready to execute. It is right before service starts when you can feel the intensity in the air.

Q: What does being voted one of the top 5 hotel chefs in San Diego mean to you?

CA: Since I am new to San Diego, I’m very honored to be in the top five with so many very talented chefs. I am proud to represent an incredible team at Loews Coronado Bay Resort.

Q: Where can we find you when you aren’t at work?

CA: At the Hillcrest Farmers Market with my two kids, eating and teaching them about seasonality.
