Nathaniel recently returned to the Lake Tahoe/Reno Area to take on the exciting task of renovating all of the dining outlets at The Club, while overseeing both day-to-day operations and an expansive team of managers, servers, hosts, private-dining professionals and catering experts.
Previously, Nathaniel honed his experience in the hotel industry, spending more than 15 years with Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Resorts. After graduating from culinary school at Johnson and Wales, Nathaniel began developing a true 360-view of the industry by working as everything from a dishwasher to a banquet server, and eventually earning the position of Ritz Carlton’s Food and Beverage Director. During this time, Nathaniel developed his business acumen and worldview alike, traveling across ten cities and three countries to open nearly a dozen Ritz-Carlton hotel and resort properties. His most recent project was in Chicago, working for the Ricketts Family who owns the Chicago Cubs. He successfully helped that team build and open all ten restaurants and 173 room boutique hotel. This project was part of the restoration effort of Historic Wrigley Field and allowed him to work with some of the finest restaurant companies in North America.
Nathaniel’s hobbies include motorcycles, 4-wheeling & spending quality time with his wife, Gabriele, their son, Tiago and Giant Schnauzer, Balthazar who is appropriately named for his favorite restaurant in New York City.
