Executive Chef Nathan Lingle
A Maine native, Executive Chef Nathan Lingle grew up living an organic “farm-to-table” life where his family gardened, farmed, fished and foraged for their daily meals, utilizing and sourcing from neighbors and local craftspeople. He brings with him nearly two decades of culinary experience in some of the most prestigious restaurants in the world such as the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia, where he partnered with celebrated French chef Eric Ripert on the concept for 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge; Ritz-Carlton, Naples; Sagamore Resort and Spa; Cliffhouse Maine; L’Auberge, Del Mar; Costa and Café Lido at Mar Monte Hotel in Santa Barbara; and the Michelin Star-rated Manresa in Los Gatos – among others. Lingle comes to Finch & Fork at Kimpton Canary Hotel most recently from FRINJ Coffee in Goleta, California, a sustainable agricultural model that pioneers California-grown coffee.
