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.

Growing up on Long Island, my go-to food is always seafood, fresh lobsters, clams, and mussels.”
