About Our Chef

Born and raised on a hobby farm in rural Minnesota, growing crops and raising various animals, John Zavoral attended Le Cordon Bleu Minneapolis/St. Paul right out of high school. He moved to Colorado in 2006 to do his externship at the former Wildflower at the Lodge at Vail. 

Chef John has a deep background in Italian cuisine, working at various restaurants in the Vail Valley including the Cucina Rustica, Campo di Fiori, La Nonna, and more recently as the Executive Chef at Toscanini Ristorante for four years. He has taken a love for fresh pasta, making and eating.

Giving back to his roots, John likes to connect locally where he can, since he knows how much hard work it takes to grow various products. He emphasizes freshness and prioritizes sourcing seasonally.

Garden And Custom Smoker

Our cuisine is prepared with high-quality ingredients sourced locally in Colorado. Our large on-site garden plots provide a bounty of fresh vegetables and herbs, used in many of our dishes. You can often find our chef out at the custom-built smoker carefully preparing juicy and tender top cuts of meat to elevate your menu!
