Think globally, eat locally is Executive Chef Anthony Marzo’s motto as he brings his European culinary style to hyper-local cuisine in ARC.
Tony has a Diploma from Dubrulle French Culinary Institute and his national Red Seal. He completed the Canadian Apprenticeship program where he received the Third Year Apprentice of the Year scholarship and was the winner of the CFCC Jr. Chef Blackbox competition.
After his studies Tony traveled extensively through Europe, immersing himself in local cultures and food before settling in London where he spent two years honing his skills at three different Michelin starred restaurants: Rhodes 24, Club Gascon and Wild Honey.
Since returning to British Columbia, he has worked at two of Canada’s top Relais & Chateaux Diamond studded hotels: The Wickaninnish Inn and Langdon Hall, Country House Hotel. Just prior to joining ARC as Executive Restaurant Chef, Tony owned the successful Vancouver restaurant Kessel & March.
Roman has lead ARC since 2016 and has been with Fairmont for over nine years, working within five properties during his tenure. He began his career as a server in the German wine region of Baden-Wurttemberg before relocating to a mountain resort in Grindelwald, Switzerland for several seasons. He then moved to Prague and worked in a variety of F&B roles for Hilton and Marriott and notably, the Four Seasons Prague, where Allegro Restaurant was awarded one Michelin star in 2008.
In 2009 Roman relocated to Vancouver, Canada and joined the team at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. After a year he traveled to London, England as part of the team that opened The Savoy. In 2013 Roman moved to Abu Dhabi to become the Assistant Outlets Manager at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. A year later saw Roman back in Canada working at the Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta.
