The following is David Patterson’s biography from The Broadmoor:
Chef Patterson has been a part of The Broadmoor since January of 2013 and we are proud to announce that he is our 6th Executive Chef in the history of the hotel. With his experience as the Executive Sous of Restaurants, David was instrumental in reopening La Taverne and the Golden Bee, opening of Ristorante del Lago, Natural Epicurean, and Play. Our all-inclusive BROADMOOR Wilderness Experience menus were also conceived and executed by David and his team to have a unique take on the history of each location. When the plans for Restaurant 1858 were being developed, David wanted to be sure to incorporate the miners and their heritage of flavors brought across the United States to the melting pot of Cheyenne Canyon. Always trying to get back to his love for food and nature, Chef Patterson helped to nurture Broadmoor Farms from concept to reality. David joined the Hotel from Adour Restaurant at The St. Regis, NYC and Benoit Bistro NYC, both parts of Groupe Alain Ducasse. During his 5 years with Mr. Ducasse, David has trained in his celebrated kitchens in Paris and Monaco, including, Michelin 3 Star, Plaza Athenée, Benoit Bistro Paris and, Michelin 3 Star, Louis XV at Hotel de Paris. During his time with Groupe Alain Ducasse, David worked closely with Sylvain Portay and Mr. Ducasse, honing his understanding of Mr. Ducasse’s culinary philosophy and standards of excellence. David was also part of the opening team at Adour Restaurant at The St. Regis, Washington, DC. Prior to his tenure with Ducasse, Chef Patterson worked at the Mobil 5 Star, AAA 5 Diamond, Maisonette, in Cincinnati, Ohio. After David’s time at The Maisonette, he worked with Passport Resort’s Hotel Hana-Maui as Executive Chef. During David’s tenure at Hotel Hana-Maui, David created a Farm-To-Table program, working closely with a dozen small farms on the island of Maui, along with cattlemen from the Big Island and the local fishing families of Hana, Maui. David’s Farm-To-Table philosophy earned national recognition, including awards from the Maui Farm Bureau and an invitation to cook at The James Beard House in NYC. In the winter of 2007, he took a step back from the range at Hotel Hana, Maui and pursued a lifelong dream to travel around the world. Spending time in Asia, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East, he immersed himself in the flavors of the eastern world. His culinary experiences are a major player in new menu development at The Broadmoor.
