Chef John Forsythe
Our executive chef, John Forsythe, spent most of his childhood in his hometown of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. As a child, he wanted to be a professional basketball player. Unfortunately his height (and possibly skill) became limiting in this dream. Luckily, another dream was eventually born and his goal changed to become a chef. Throughout his career, he has had the opportunity to cook for John Travolta, Alec Baldwin, Robin Williams, Dr. Ruth, and perhaps the most nerve wracking was Bob Hope, while he was an apprentice. As a Level 2 Sommelier, his favorite beverage is a noble glass of Pinot Noir. Chef Forsythe is a leader in the kitchen with values in comradery and creative process. Chef Forsythe has built many important relationships within the industry and has a passion in creating meaningful connections with his team and our guests. His dream vacation would be spending the day golfing in Australia, followed by dinner at his favorite restaurant ,Ten Minutes, by Tractor, in Mornington Peninsula, Australia.
