Rosario Resort & Spa's Director of Food and Beverage Art Woods (left) and General Manager Dan Dohner (right) congratulate Executive Chef Steve Lutz as the Manager of the Quarter. Chef Lutz began his culinary education near the sunny beaches of Long Boat Key, Florida at the L’ Auberge Du Bon restaurant, where he trained in the French classical methods, butchering meat and preparing stocks and sauces. With solid training, Steve left the L’Auberge Du Bon to join a new restaurant opening on Anna Maria Island, Florida, called the Beach Bistro. During his tenure as sous chef, the Beach Bistro became a Zagat recognized, destination restaurant.
The next stop on Steve’s journey landed him at The Inn of the Mountain Gods in Ruidoso New Mexico, where he worked for seven years before departing as executive sous chef to begin his own venture. In 1997, Chef Lutz and his wife opened their own restaurant, Dr. Steve’s Kitchen, It’ll “cure” what ails you, the name originating from his love for “curing” meats and seafood. The boutique-style restaurant featured a blend of French, Cajun and regional Mexican cuisine that became a local favorite. Prior to joining Rosario, Steve returned to the four-star, The Inn of the Mountain of the Gods where he served as chef de cuisine for Wendells, the hotel’s restaurant.
