Finally, Studio At Montage Laguna Beach Names New Executive Chef
Following a lengthy countrywide search, the Montage has announced Craig Strong as Executive Chef of Studio, replacing James Boyce, who left earlier this year.
Strong, until yesterday Chef de Cuisine at The Langham, Huntington Hotel & Spa (formerly Ritz-Carlton) in Pasadena, was a semifinalist for Best Chef/Pacific in the 2009 James Beard Foundation Awards.
He is, we're told, getting married first, then starting his new gig at the Montage in June. Busy boy!
