    Dining Director: David Jones

    As a kid, I grew up with a love for food and cooking. While my friends were spending their time watching cartoons, I was glued to the television enamored by the likes of “Galloping Gourmet” and “Julia Childs”.  My chef experience varied in hotels and restaurants, but I found my passion to cook was elevated when I worked in healthcare and was cooking for those who couldn’t get out to a restaurant type meal.
