AVON, Colo. (Feb. 21, 2018) The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa Avon, Vail Valley is pleased to announce that Angel Munoz Jr. is now serving as Executive Chef at the award-winning resort.

Chef Munoz – who was born and raised in Tijuana, Mexico before he started his cooking career in San Diego - has been greatly influenced by the American-Mexican culture. A student of the Sustainable Cuisine program at Colorado Mountain College, he was hired as a line cook at The Westin Riverfront in 2012 and has risen through the ranks to take the lead position.

Chef Munoz oversees Maya, the resort’s modern Mexican kitchen created by Chef Richard Sandoval, as well as the Lift and The Lookout lobby bar. He is also in charge of all food served in the resort’s more than 7,500 square feet of mountain event space, which includes the 4,000 square foot Riverside Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning Beaver Creek views, and a 2,000 square foot outdoor banquet terrace.

“Chef Munoz is a passionate chef and we are thrilled to be able to promote a valued employee to this leadership position,” said Westin Riverfront General Manager Kristen Pryor. “He truly understands the bold Latin flavors that we serve at Maya and is fantastic at incorporating local Colorado products into our menus, as well as the fresh herbs and produce that we grow in our on-site garden.”
