Conveniently located inside of recently-remodeled Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, Costero California Bar + Bistro has announced the appointment of Executive Chef Collin Smelser to the hotel’s dynamic culinary team. Chef Smelser, who possesses a rich background in the culinary world, will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of Costero California Bar + Bistro, in addition to developing and planning new recipes and menus.
Chef Smelser received his education from the prestigious New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT. Upon graduation, he honed his extraordinary skills and artistry at nearby Antlers Hilton and Sonterra Grill in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. His name was soon put on the map as a culinary professional whose passion for his work inevitably earned him the title of Executive Chef at the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera in the heart of ski country.
Prior to joining Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, Chef Smelser was the executive chef at the luxurious Chase Park Plaza, a luxury high-rise hotel in Downtown St. Louis, Mo.
“Los Angeles is home to some of the best restaurants in the country, which is why I couldn’t refuse the opportunity to come to California,” states Chef Smelser. “The staff and I are looking forward to taking Costero to the next level so that people won’t think of us as a typical hotel restaurant but an unique, LA dining establishment.”
