BiteClub has learned that Seafood Brasserie, the McCormick & Schmick-managed seafood restaurant in Santa Rosa’s Hyatt Hotel will be losing its longtime chef, Liz Ozanich and restaurant’s management group, McCormick & Schmick’s will be pulling out.
The change comes as the Hyatt Vineyard Creek & Spa transitions ownership to the Noble Investment Group. McCormick & Schmick’s, an Oregon-based seafood restaurant group, was contracted to manage the restaurant in 2004. A McCormick’s spokesperson confirmed that the group will cease management in the coming weeks, turning the restaurant back over to the Hyatt hotel.
Chef Ozanich, who has been involved with Seafood Brasserie since its early days as Brasserie De La Mer
(the brainchild of Portland chef Philippe Boulot) is leaving Santa Rosa
to take over at McCormick & Kuleto’s Seafood Restaurant in San
Ozanich’s replacement has not yet been named.
