Mentored by former White House chef, new Herrington culinary leader anxious to make his mark on suburban dining scene.

The Herrington Inn & Spa is proud to announce Jeffery Potter as its new executive chef.

Chef Potter has extensive upscale culinary experience, which includes country clubs, restaurants and most recently the Hotel Arista in Naperville.  Chef Potter solidified his devotion to cooking during a stint with former White House executive Chef Pierre Chambrin. “Chef Chambrin not only helped to teach me how to be innovative while still incorporating classical preparation methods, he also instilled in me the philosophy to never compromise quality and the importance of attention to detail”, stated Potter.

 

The Herrington Inn & Spa is home to the award winning Atwater’s restaurant.  With only 40 seats in the dining room, a private gazebo that seats up to 8 people and stunning views of the Fox River Atwater’s is considered one of the most romantic restaurants in the Chicago area.  Chef Potter is infusing his own menu, which will be focusing on locally grown ingredients and the freshest fish available. Potter will also oversee the Herrington’s banquet food service, which caters to meetings, events and banquets for up to 225 people.

“We are confident that Chef Potter will bring fresh and innovative ideas to further establish The Herrington Inn & Spa’s reputation as one of the top dining experiences in the Chicago area.” stated Paul Ruby, President of Shodeen Hospitality.

The 61 room Herrington Inn and Spa is the Chicago suburbs most awarded hotel featuring fireplaces and whirlpool tubs in all the rooms and picturesque views of the Fox River. The perfect place for a corporate meeting, a short get away, or a wedding venue. The Herrington Inn & Day Spa offers many options for massage, facial, or body treatments. The Herrington & Spa recently earned AAAs’ prestigious  Four-Diamond award for the 22nd consecutive year.
