Enjoy Outdoor Fine Dining in Cannes

JW Marriott, Cannes Welcomes New Chef at New Rooftop Grill

CANNES, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) -  It's a summer bursting with excitement in France as luxury hotel deals in Cannes lead travelers into some of the area's finest accommodations and the opportunity to experience spectacular events and remarkable Cannes fine dining.

Boasting futuristic opulence, the newly renovated JW Grill Cannes located inside the expressive JW Marriott Cannes, not only features remarkable new designs, but a talented new executive chef as well.

Sebastien Klinholff has been chosen to helm the staff of masterful chefs at this 5-star hotel in Cannes' signature restaurant bringing with him New York gourmet and celebrity chef experiences that have proven to be invaluable resources during his past 10 years of restaurant and catering experience.

Always welcoming the opportunity to promote the culinary arts, during his past four years as Cluster Executive Chef at the Tbilisi Marriott and Courtyard by Marriott located in the Republic of Georgia, Klinholff became actively involved in the local community. His involvement with local vocational schools and various charity events, along with television and newspaper appearances paralleled his duties of meal preparation for hotel guests, which often included the republic's visiting dignitaries. 

Now, as executive chef in this new and inviting JW Marriott Cannes hotel's la Croisette restaurant, he again is focusing on seizing every occasion to pass on knowledge while working with the local community. Stressing the importance of using fresh, seasonable, simple and healthy foodstuffs, guests have the opportunity to enjoy locally grown lamb, veal and poultry products along with USDA Certified Natural Premium Angus Beef from Creekstone Farms in Kansas. Seafood, grilled to perfection on a high temperature American grill also highlight the menu.

Bringing new meaning to elegant outdoor fine dining in Cannes, the JW Grill is one of the best places to witness the 2012 International Fireworks Festival as it ignites the sky with brilliant displays over the Bay of Cannes. Well-known as one of the most prestigious fireworks displays in the world, the annual summer festival brings nearly 200,000 persons to the city to witness the spectacular displays. Set to take place over six days in July and August, this year's remaining dates are July 29, August 15 and August 24. Offering special menus and remarkable views of the fireworks over the Mediterranean, travelers may call 04 92 99 70 92 for additional information and reservations.
