Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa Hires New Executive Chef Steven Riemer

Posted May 24th, 2011 Media Buzz

SAN DIEGO, California (May 2011) – The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa has named Steven Riemer, Executive Chef.  In his new role, Chef Riemer will oversee all restaurant, banquet, and culinary programs at the Catamaran.

Riemer served as the Executive Sous Chef of The Lodge at Torrey Pines for eight years. As a member of the opening team in 2001, he was instrumental in the creation of the Lodge’s signature market-driven cuisine.  During his tenure, The Lodge culinary team won a number of prestigious awards and received many accolades for its market-driven California-American cuisine.

Prior to the Lodge, Riemer  was Chef de Cuisine of the Club Grill at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. During his tenure at the Ritz he cooked for and alongside such culinary legends at Pierre Troisgros and Paul Bocuse and represented the Ritz at James Beard House, NYC.  While his experience at the Ritz grounded him in classic culinary technique,  Riemer’s partnership with Jeff Jackson at The Lodge gave him the opportunity to build a strong, flexible kitchen program from the ground up, as well as collaborating with Jackson on the development of inventive seasonal menus.  In January 2010 Steven took a sabbatical from work to travel and explore regional food and wine trends in restaurants, cooking, and farming across America.

This fall the Catamaran’s signature, bay-front restaurant, the Atoll, will unveil a new culinary identity under Chef Riemer’s direction. We welcome Chef Steven Riemer and his passion for food to the Catamaran Resort Hotel.  He can be reached at 858.539.8655 or by email at
