Sanchez Gastón executive chef

A descendant of Cuban and Spanish bloodlines, Gastón discovered his passion for food at an early age, spending countless hours honing his skills in the kitchen with his grandmothers. After obtaining a dual degree in Culinary Arts and Business Administration, Gastón explored and refined his skills abroad, where he apprenticed with Michelin-Star chefs including Chef Ferran Adrià in Spain and Chef Gastón Acurio in Peru. He has also been a private chef for various celebrities, owned and operated his own restaurants and catering companies, and was showcased on The Food Network’s Celebrity Dish cooking show.

Since 2015, Chef Sanchez Gastón has held various positions at upscale hotels in South Florida including the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs, where he received two Hyatt Excellence Awards, and the iconic Deauville Beach Resort before its permanent closure in 2017.

Chef Gastón excels at finding complementary textures for bold flavors, incorporating an array of cultures, techniques, and ingredients. One of his most notable strengths is creating exceptional tasting menus, with inspired pairings that are second to none.

jason jones | general manager

Our GM is a man of many talents: In addition to spending two decades learning every aspect of the restaurant industry, from Lima, Peru, to the shores of South Florida, he’s also a Marine Corps veteran, a saber fencing enthusiast and the author of a half-dozen fantasy novels. (And those are just the skills we know about.) Like many midwestern boys, Jason grew up trapping, fishing and hunting in his native Wisconsin; at age 14 he gave up his paper route to work as a cashier in a restaurant, and he never looked back. After his military service, Jason built an illustrious career in fine dining that has earned him eight Wine Spectator Awards, among others accolades. Outside of work, you can find him enjoying a fine cigar or hanging out with his wife and three children.
