Executive Chef Mitchell Kaldrovich offers a fresh take on all things Maine in our new restaurant Sea Glass. With a culinary focus on creating the freshest fare from local and seasonal ingredients, Kaldrovich adds an international touch to Maine flavors at the Inn’s ocean view restaurant.
Chef Kaldrovich brings extensive experience at several acclaimed dining establishments and world-class resorts to Sea Glass, as well as an exciting international sensibility, that takes the Inn's locally inspired menu to the next level. The chef creates and works hands-on with the menu that changes regularly to integrate the freshest ingredients available locally, in addition to managing all aspects of the restaurant’s kitchen and catering operations.
“The concept is to be light and fresh, to enjoy Maine’s natural flavors, and to let the food speak for itself,” says the chef. “ No overwhelming sauces, but a creative mix of flavors and combinations of sides that allow the pure taste of our Maine scallops and White Mussels, or the delicious simplicity of a Maine potato, and the sweetness of farm ripened tomatoes to come out.”
A native of East Orange, New Jersey, but raised in Argentina, Kaldrovich realized at a young age that he wanted to become a chef. By the age of ten he was helping his grandmother cook sumptuous family meals, which flamed a life long interest in culinary excellence. After completing three years of rigorous studies in Culinary Schools, Kaldrovich was hired as a line cook at Galani Restaurant, a four-star establishment at the Buenos Aires Park Hyatt Hotel. He went on to become the Chef Partie at Harpers 1 and 2 in the prestigious Recoleta neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
Mitchell’s desire to return to the United States resulted in positions at several highly celebrated establishments including the exclusive L’ Orangerie Restaurant in West Hollywood, the Duck Club restaurant in Monterey, California, the La Palme D’ Or at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida, and the luxurious Llao Llao Hotel & Resort in Patagonia. Most recently, Kaldrovich was Executive Chef of the famous Plump Jack café in Squaw Valley, California.
Now as executive chef at Inn by the Sea Chef Mitchell Kaldrovich brings his worldly knowledge about food to Sea Glass, as well as his creativity, passion and finesse. The chef looks forward to working with Maine producers and ingredients to introduce his unique style of cooking to Inn guests.
