OTTAWA — Frédéric Filliodeau has been named executive chef of Sheraton Ottawa, effective Monday, Dec. 19, reports the Ottawa Citizen.
“It’s nice to be back in Ottawa. They have a new vision at the Sheraton to develop the culinary aspect, and general manager, Rob Roy, wants to make the Sheraton a dining destination,” Filliodeau was quoted as saying in the Citizen.
Prior to his appointment, Filliodeau was preparing to open a 230-seat bistro moderne at France’s Atlantic seaside resort La Baule-Escoublac. He earned AAA-CAA five-diamond status in 2000 at Nuances restaurant at the Casino de Montreal and again in 2005 for Signatures restaurant at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Institute in Ottawa.
Filliodeau plans to change the menu at the Carleton Dining Room to include more fresh Canadian produce.
