La Ville Hotel & Suites Welcomes New Executive Chef
Presenting a new outlook on food at the Boutique Hotel
The charming 5-star boutique hotel, La Ville Hotel & Suites CITY WALK, welcomes Moritz Neumann as the Executive Chef. Chef Moritz with over 16 years of experience is bringing his culinary expertise to create new flavors for the hotel and its outstanding dining venues.
“It is a great honor for me to join the team of this lifestyle boutique hotel. I am focused on updating the gastronomic landscape to ensure that the culinary experience is just as remarkable as the hotel itself,” says Chef Moritz "To best describe my cooking style, I would call it simple cosmopolitan, where the main ingredients take center stage and the techniques and flavors come from different global influences collected over the years. I enjoy enhancing natural flavors, ensuring our guests leave feeling nourished, well fed and looking forward to come back for more in no time."
The German Chef started his career with the Marriott International when he joined Munich Marriott Hotel as apprentice in 2002. Over the past decade, Moritz has worked in leading hotels and restaurants in Germany, United Kingdom, United States of America, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. Most recently, he worked as the Executive Sous Chef overlooking the opening of the Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai and its f&b concept Outlets.
At La Ville Hotel & Suites, he is mandated with the all-around management and operations of the property’s beautiful dining venues including GRAZE, a gastro-grill serving a social culinary experience, focused on prime beef cuts, Grapeskin, a standalone grape bar and kitchen, Chival, a social eatery and LookUp lounge, overlooking the rooftop pool.
Cooking since a young age, Chef Moritz focuses on using fresh regional produce for his dishes, which significantly influenced his style of cooking. It is more and more important for customers to understand where their food was sourced from to enjoy their meal with us. Cooking rustic, homely food paired with creativity highlighting the original texture and flavors of the main ingredients constantly shines through his dishes.
Bringing unconventional flair to typical meat dishes, he has curated a new menu for GRAZE, which offers an array of modern dishes with urban bold flavors, staying true to the restaurants roots. The new menu is focused on high-quality beef from Australia. “We have been very fortunate to work with well-established farms that produce the best meats available in the market and worldwide,” says Moritz. His next focus will be to work on developing new menus for Chival and Grapeskin, inking lingering flavors to every aspect of the hotel.
