ABOUT THE CHEF
Chef Steven Hall
Steven Hall has been a professional chef for more than fifteen years. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Chef Steven holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Eastern Michigan University. He later attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in 2006, where he graduated first in his class. His culinary career started with internships at Todd English’s Olives and C. Charlie’s Trotters in Las Vegas, Nevada. Shortly thereafter, curiosity and ambition drove him to Orlando, Florida, in 2008, where he held executive positions in a number of five-star hotels and resorts, including the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando and the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort at Todd English's Bluezoo, an upscale seafood restaurant. He also obtained an executive position at St. Pete Beach’s world-renowned Don CeSar, The Legendary Pink Palace®.
In 2014, after joining Crescent Hotel & Resorts Group, Chef Steven’s culinary repertoire began to flourish nationwide. He opened numerous fine dining concepts in high-end boutique hotels, showcasing his culinary creations and incredible leadership capabilities. A couple of these establishments include Hotel Aliz Times Square New York and Hotel PUR, Quebec, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel. During this experience, Chef Steven acquired the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Certification, and he is now a member of the ACF Tampa Bay Culinary Association.
Passion, creativity and innovation fuel his work, as Chef Steven is continually inspired by today’s culinary arts and trends. His success can be attributed to constantly being surrounded by a talented team while exercising his natural leadership skills and his mastery in recipe creation and implementation. He lives by Gordan Ramsey’s famous quote, “You’re only as good as your last dish.”
After nearly two years of life on the road, Chef Steven finally settled down in Tampa, Florida, where he currently resides and serves as head chef at Current, a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel. When he’s not in the kitchen, Chef Steven enjoys spending quality time with his beloved family and playing basketball with friends.
