Olympic Valley, Calif. - The AAA Four-Diamond Resort at Squaw Creek, a Destination Resorts & Hotels-managed property, has named Angel Talavera manager of the property's signature restaurant, Six Peaks Grille, as well as room service. In his new capacity, he will be responsible for breakfast, lunch and dinner service at Six Peaks Grille, in addition to oversight of room service operations.
Talavera has worked at numerous resorts and restaurants such as The Peak's at Telluride, Tantra Indian Cousin Restaurant and La Belle Epoch in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Othello's Italian Restaurant and El Conquistador Resort and Spa at Fajardo, Puerto Rico.
"Angel is a great 'people person,'" said Ramon Villegas, Resort at Squaw Creek's director of restaurants. "He really knows the business, and will make sure we deliver the highest level of service to our guests."
When asked about his move to the Lake Tahoe area, Talavera replied, "I have lived in several areas of the United States and, in a short time, Tahoe has become my favorite. On top of that, Resort at Squaw Creek is a great resort, and with this team I feel that we can accomplish any goal."
Talavera joined the Resort at Squaw Creek in November from the Casa Marina Resort & Beach Club in Key West, Florida, where he oversaw operations for the food and beverage outlets.
