Hilton Sandestin Hires
New Sushi Chef
Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa has a new sushi chef, Sam Sumio Miyashita. He'll oversee the handcrafted sushi creations at Hadashi, one of the six restaurant outlets at the resort.
He'll also handle specialty sushi requests for events scheduled in the resort's meeting and banquet space.
“Chef Miyashita brings a wealth of talent and creative culinary skills to the resort,” said Gary Brielmayer, the resort's general manager. “His expertise in creating sushi utilizing only the finest available premium ingredients will ‘wow’ our guests, enhancing their overall experience at the resort.”
A culinary industry veteran of more than 18 years, Miyashita combines traditional sushi techniques fused with a contemporary flair.
Miyashita grew up in Japan and was taught traditional Japanese sushi skills while working in his family’s restaurant in Miyazaki, Japan.
He comes to the Hilton Sandestin Beach with experience from a number of sushi restaurants, hotels and resorts including the Marriott Hotel Resort on Marco Island, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Naples and Miami's Fontainebleau, where he was the Japanese sous chef.
