Chef Mike joined Santa Marta in 2009. A Midwest native, he graduated at the top of his class at Le Cordon Bleu and honed his craft in Oregon and Kansas City. He was executive chef for Annie’s Santa Fe on the Plaza and at Oak Park Plaza, and executive chef and catering director for Ya Ya’s Euro Bistro. “I loved all my mom’s food and watching her cook,” he says, so he was inspired to make cooking his profession because of her.
From simple and sustaining daily bread to sumptuous chef-prepared dinners, we aim to please. And expertly prepared and presented meals are just the start. Steered by our executive director, who has an exceptional background in hospitality and is a certified executive chef, our dining staff provide a remarkable experience that goes far beyond what’s on your plate.
Expertly prepared meals.
