A veteran hospitality mastermind, Antoine’s vast experience and intel spans from his many years with InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand where he deftly rose through the ranks as director of food and beverage, executive assistant manager, manager, and general manager throughout the U.S. and internationally. Notable destinations include: Toronto Yorkville in Canada; Abidjan in West Africa; Mayfair and Park Lane in London; Cleveland, Ohio; and Atlanta, Georgia, where he shined as director of food and beverage in 2004 during the city’s culinary evolution.
