GRAND RAPIDS, MI – February 12, 2018 – The Kitchen and The Kitchen Counter by Wolfgang Puck is pleased to welcome Gergely "Greg" Seregi as executive chef. In his new role, Greg will oversee all aspects of The Kitchen and The Kitchen Counter by Wolfgang Puck’s culinary operations within the Amway Grand Plaza, Curio Collection By Hilton.

A Budapest native and fourth generation chef, Greg's passion for the culinary arts began at an early age and was heavily influenced by Hungarian and French-styled cuisine. Greg began his career at St. Jupat Restaurant in Budapest where he became executive chef during his 16-year tenure prior to joining Nobu to pursue his passion for Asian-fusion cuisine. Greg will bring new menu concepts to the restaurant, inspired by his culinary experiences with global comfort foods focusing on new Asian-fusion dishes.

Prior to joining The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck, Greg served at several of Nobu's international outlets, including opening Nobu's first London location as well as outposts in Miami Beach, Las Vegas and Lāna‘i City in Hawaii. A graduate of Gundel Karoly Culinary School, Greg received a masters of culinary arts.
