RANCHO MIRAGE RESORT CHEFS
With more than 35 years of culinary experience in some of the world’s top kitchens, including Seoul, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Berlin, Switzerland and both coasts of the U.S. in New York, Boston, Miami, New Orleans and Beverly Hills, Chef Robert Nyerick directs all hotel catering and dining outlets: R Bar, Splash Grill, Palms Café, Spa Café and the resort’s signature restaurant, bluEmber.
Being located in the Coachella Valley in Southern California gives us the widest local palette of produce at its peak. Selecting ingredients that will showcase the flavors, textures and appearance is key to Chef Nyerick's culinary vision for dining at Omni Rancho Las Palmas.
