The hotel plans to open in November

Loews Coral Gables Hotel chose Chef Ricardo Jarquin to manage all culinary aspects of the new 242-room hotel in Coral Gables. Jarquin will oversee the development and implementation of menus and culinary offerings for all dining outlets, banquet functions and curated hotel culinary programming.

Chef Jarquin has 17 years of experience working for premier hotel brands across the country. He recently worked at St. Regis Bal Harbour, serving as Executive Chef for two years.
