Nathan Lingle, Executive Chef at Mar Monte Hotel, brings extensive kitchen experience and local inspiration to Costa Restaurant. With an eye for seasonal produce and a nod to Old World inspiration, Chef Nathan focuses on flavor balance, cutting-edge techniques, and fresh concepts, while crafting winning menus that highlight California’s natural bounty.

Chef Nathan graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and then honed his culinary skills in the kitchen of The Ritz-Carlton Resort in Naples, Florida. He was later appointed Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia, before serving as the Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at L’Auberge Del Mar Resort in Del Mar, California.

In 2020, we are proud to welcome Chef Nathan to the Mar Monte Hotel, where he headlines both costa Restaurant and the hotel’s Café Lido.
