MEET EXECUTIVE CHEF

Fernando Coppola

Chef Coppola boasts extensive knowledge of the culinary and hospitality industry , cultivated from over  twenty years of experience in some of the most esteemed kitchens across the globe, including those in Qatar, Puerto Rico and Uruguay, as well as his home country of Argentina.

With a strong belief that the best dishes start with great ingredients, specifically organic and local produce, his own cuisine gravitates toward highlighting simple and unadulterated flavors. A graduate of Alicia Berger Cooking School with a certificate in culinary arts, he trained under Maurice Lacharme and Alicia Berger, members of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, Académie Culinaire de France and former Bocuse d’Or jury members, and credits his signature cooking style to the fundamentals he developed under their tutelage. Chef Coppola has developed expertise in Spanish, Italian, French, South American and Modern Fusion cuisines, and he comes to AC Hotel Greenville Downtown from W Chicago City Center, where he served as executive chef and director of beverage and food. He has also served as executive chef at W Retreat & Spa – Vieques Island and as chef de cuisine at Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel in Qatar.
