Chef Bryon Lopez
Born and raised in Southern California, Bryon Lopez grew up in the kitchen surrounded by his family, especially his grandmother and aunt. After receiving his first apron at 12 years old from his aunt, he was hooked on cooking. Chef Bryon worked his way up in the culinary world, passing through kitchens including Tom Colicchio’s Craft LA, eventually landing the coveted title of Chef de Cuisine at The Ritz Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara under Chef Umit Kaygusuz. While Chef Bryon’s culinary talents have taken him through various restaurants and luxury hotels on the west coast, his travels have largely influenced his cooking, especially through WWOOFing in New Zealand and exploring street food in Oaxaca. After a 15-year career in California, he has relocated to the Catskills to take on the Executive Chef role at Shandaken Inn.
