Guillermo Veloso has joined the team at Ocean Place Resort and Spa as their new executive chef. Veloso is no stranger to the region, being a New York City and northern Jersey native. 

Veloso has an extensive culinary career extending more than 35 years, but he has also spent time as an archaeologist and naturalist. He was the executive chef at Miami’s Yuca Restaurant and has also served as executive chef at Philadelphia’s Cuba Libre and the Please Touch Museum. 

His culinary creations have won him plenty of acclaim, with reviews and appearances on Great Chefs of the South, Rising Star Chefs of America, Food Network, Chef on a Shoestring, and others. 

Ocean Place Resort and Spa was selected by the readers of New Jersey Meetings + Events as Best Hotel over 200 Rooms in our first Best of New Jersey awards last year. We also spotlighted the resort’s brand-new spa in our Spring 2017 issue.

This past October, the world lost a business and philanthropic giant with the passing of Paul Allen. Here in the Northwest, his absence will be deeply felt. Among his many achievements, Allen co-founded Microsoft; founded Vulcan Inc., Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Allen Institute for Brain Sciences, and Allen Institute for Cell Science; and was owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers. There doesn’t seem to be an industry that he hasn’t touched, expanded and improved, including the meetings and events industry, particularly in the Seattle area.
