JAMES CITY-A new executive chef has been named at Kingsmill Resort.

On September 15, it was announced that Mark Florimonte has assumed the position. In his new role at Kingsmill Resort, Florimonte plans to incorporate local and seasonal ingredients into the menus of the resort’s five restaurants.

 “My focus is always on the ‘wow’ factor, both in the flavor and presentation,” Florimonte said in a release.  “I work to create the freshest, most flavorful items that present in a way that is unique and creative. Growing up on Long Island, my go-to food is always seafood, fresh lobsters, clams, and mussels.”

 Florimonte, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has more than three decades of experience in the industry. He most recently served at the campus executive chef of the College of William & Mary.
