So the new chef at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek isn’t exactly new. In fact, Liz Ozanich was actually one of the opening chefs for the Hyatt Vineyard Creek Inn’s restaurant, when it opened as Brasserie de la Mer in 2007. She replaces Richard Whipple, who left the restaurant in October. The new menu is in the works, and will likely take a couple of months to be fully established. BiteClub looks forward to seeing what’s new, but sheds a tiny tear for the loss of Whipple’s amazing Swedish cream cannolis.

  1. I’m not sure if many people know that chef Liz Ozanich was let go from the Brasserie at Hyatt Vineyard Creek on Valentines day 2/14/2014 only being there 90 days. I wish Chef Liz good luck she is a class act and a great chef.

  2. Thank god she is back!

  3. Let hope the food and service see a steep climb upward from the lows we have experienced in the last few years. Poor service and poor hurt business at this hotel and for good reason. We kept going there hoping it would improve, it never did.

  4. Your an Idiot REGI-IDIOT

  5. Hi everyone this is Chef Richard, I had hand surgery back in May, I’m still on disability while my hand heals. I resigned at the end of September. I wish Chef Liz all the luck and success in the world. Look for me in the future, I will be cooking in the beautiful wine country again.

  6. Glad to hear of the change in chefs…the Brasserie definitely needed it.
