MEET OUR CHEF: Chris Rolewicz
Spending most of his childhood in south Florida, Chris Rolewicz developed an early appreciation for fresh seafood and tropical fruits. Chris was also inspired to cook by some of his earliest memories in the kitchen like helping his grandmother roll out pie dough and using strawberries right from the garden.
Chris moved to Chicago to attend The Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago Le Cordon Bleu. He began at Molive Restaurant in The Whitehall Hotel and then We Restaurant in The W City Center. Chris then took a Sous Chef position at The Westin Michigan Avenue where he oversaw banquets and developed his leadership skills. With the desire to move to the west coast, Chris took an Executive Sous Chef position at The Westin Bellevue in the Seattle area. Here he was able to use the Cypress Lounge & Wine Bar as a creative vessel to do farm to table wine dinners that were partnered with local wineries and farmers, as well as run a seasonal & sustainable menu daily. During this time, Cypress Lounge & Wine Bar was named “best hotel bar” by Seattle Magazine.
Chris’ success led him to be the Executive Chef at The Westin Chicago River North where he has the pleasure of leading a very talented and passionate team. Chris takes great pride in inspiring others to elevate and in turn, they inspire him. Chris’ culinary style is mostly rooted in the Midwest but is also reflective of his experiences in the pacific northwest and south Florida. At The Westin Chicago River North and 320, the menus are a perfect balance where the idea is that every sense is stimulated for every dish. Chris has a passion for seasonal cooking, sustainability, and urban gardening. His philosophy is simple, “cook what you love, and never stop learning.”
