Umstead Chef Takes the Helm at An New World Cuisine in Cary
Chef Steven Devereaux Greene, chef de cuisine of Herons at The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, North Carolina has a dream. To operate an Asian-inspired restaurant. And the owners of the hotel are helping him realize that dream by naming him Executive Chef of their Asian-inspired restaurant, An New World Cuisine.
Located just down the street from The Umstead, An, which means "to dine or to eat" in Vietnamese, specializes in signature "New World" cuisine blended with Southeast Asian flavors and European influences and will continue to present a comprehensive sushi menu and the freshest seafood and meats under Greene's tutelage. Featured for its acclaimed international flavors in Southern Living and Food Arts, An has also been honored with Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence in 2010 and 2011.
As chef de cuisine of Heron's, Greene was instrumental in helping The Umstead's signature restaurant achieve its first AAA Five Diamond Award and Forbes Five-Star Rating, just one of 25 restaurants worldwide to receive the prestigious honor. Now he will take his polished and creative culinary style, innate talent, and passion for local foods and incorporate them into the robust flavors of Southeast Asia.
An New World Cuisine is open for lunch Monday through Friday and dinner Monday through Saturday.
