The current executive chef is Matt Zubrod. Matt began his career with The Ritz-Carlton, initially working in Aspen, Naples and Boston before moving on to the historic Hotel del Coronado near San Diego as executive sous-chef. In 1999, he took over The Vail Cascade Resort as executive chef and opened The Ritz-Carlton Club, Aspen Highlands as executive chef in 2001. He next moved to Hawaii where he opened the now-shuttered Monettes at Mauna Kea Resort, which he ran for several years. A short stopover in California at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa brought Matt, his wife, Denise, and their children back to the mainland. In 2013, they returned to Aspen where he served as executive chef at BB’s Kitchen until joining The Little Nell.
