Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara is pleased to announce the appointment of Vincent Lesage as executive chef.

“Chef Lesage’s impressive career includes three-star Michelin restaurants in Paris as well as experience at some of the world’s most luxurious hotels,” said Kathleen Cochran, managing director of Bacara Resort & Spa. “We are thrilled to share in his expertise as we reinvent our culinary program.”

After graduating from the Institut Paul Bocuse in Ecully, France, Lesage trained at some of the world’s most celebrated establishments, including The Ritz Paris, the Michelin three-star restaurant, L’Astrance, and Michelin three-star restaurant, Bras.

Most recently, Lesage served as executive chef of Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, where he opened two of the city’s only waterfront restaurants, Waterline and A&O Kitchen + Bar. Prior to that, he served as executive sous chef at St. Regis Monarch Beach, managing a culinary team of more than 60.

Today, as executive chef of Bacara’s renowned culinary program, Lesage will oversee the resort’s six dining experiences, including a new signature restaurant opening spring 2016.

When asked about his vision for Bacara, Lesage said, “I approach every outlet as its own distinct concept. From a healthy breakfast at Spa Café to a casual family meal at The Bistro, each experience is unique, and each experience is exceptional.”

When Lesage is not in the kitchen, he enjoys spending time with his family and exploring Santa Barbara’s museums.

— Anne Elcon is the marketing director for Bacara Resort & Spa.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
