Daniel Salomon | Executive Chef
Daniel Salomon has more than 20 years in the hospitality industry leading culinary teams and creating exceptional menus for luxury and independent hotel properties throughout the country. With a deep love for hospitality and food, Chef Salomon grew up working in his family’s pastry shop in Casablanca, Morocco, before immigrating to the United States at a young age. As he recalls, “growing up in a Middle Eastern-Cuban household was all about family, friends and lots of food!” We’re honored to have him leading the charge as Executive Chef at our rooftop bar, lou/na; and our Tennessee-to-table restaurant, The Nashville Grange, since April 2020.
