Splendido at the Chateau | Beaver Creek, Colorado | https://splendidorestaurant.com/

Brian Ackerman has been with Splendido for over a decade, working as a sous chef and then for years as chef-de-cuisine. He purchased the restaurant in the spring of 2016, and as executive chef he is committed to carrying on the restaurant's pronounced legacy within the Colorado culinary scene. Brian focuses on the highest quality ingredients, with creative yet streamlined preparations so food is always presented in pure and delicious renditions.

Starting his studies in restaurant management at the University of Missouri, Brian decided to complete his training and graduate from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Following graduation, he worked under notable national chefs, including Ken Oringer (of Toro and Uni acclaim). After moving to the Vail Valley, he helped chef Kelly Liken open her namesake restaurant in Vail Village. Brian worked at other well-respected Vail Valley restaurants, though he devoted most of his professional career to Splendido at the Chateau.
