at The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, Mexico

PUNTA MITA, Mexico (November 17, 2011) – General Manager Carl Emberson is pleased to announce Daniele Tonin as the new chef of Sea Breeze at the AAA Five-Diamond St. Regis Punta Mita Resort.  A culinary leader possessing a wealth of experience in the kitchens of luxury resorts throughout Mexico, Chef Tonin has created a new menu at Sea Breeze, which overlooks the pristine beaches of Bahía de Banderas and features contemporary cuisine with Italian influences in a relaxed bistro environment.
“We are pleased to welcome Daniele to the resort’s culinary team as chef of Sea Breeze,” said Emberson.  “His experience creating an array of cuisines for discerning guests from Mexico to Shanghai is a perfect complement to The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort’s unparalleled culinary offerings.”
Chef Tonin comes to The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort from Da Marco Italian Restaurant in Shanghai.  Prior to that, he served as the executive sous chef at the Presidente InterContinental Hotel Cozumel Resort & Spa Mexico, where he was responsible for the culinary program at the acclaimed Alfredo di Roma Italian restaurant.  The chef also honed his craft at Hotel Villa del Palmar in Cabos San Lucas; Ristorante Da Giorgio in Cabos San Lucas; and at Alfredo Di Roma restaurants at the Hotel Presidente InterContinental in Los Cabos and Mexico City.
“I am delighted to join such an accomplished team at one of the world’s most beautiful resort destinations,” said Chef Tonin.  “It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to share my culinary vision while offering our guests a relaxed and refined dining experience at Sea Breeze.”
Sea Breeze features the freshest hand-selected ingredients including local seafood, organic produce, and top-of-the-line prime Black Angus beef.  Chef Tonin’s dynamic new menu reflects his passion for Italian cuisine and St. Regis’ beautiful coastal setting.  The menu is comprised of homemade pastas, al fresco dishes, and an assortment of seafood.  Highlights include Artichoke Salad with Green Beans and Eggplant Caviar, a traditional Mediterranean salad with extra virgin olive oil, Serrano ham and cherry tomatoes; Spice Tagliolini with asparagus, shrimps, and chili from Southern Italy; and Organic Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach, a typical dish from Northern Italy that is served with homemade raviolis and pepper sauce.
