Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Introduces
New Chefs for Three Dining Venues
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (October 10, 2018) – Seminole Casino Coconut Creek has named new Chefs at three of its dining venues.
Paul Youngstrand is the Chef for NYY Steak, while Shannon Weiberg takes over at Sorrisi and Jarrod Campbell at Fresh Harvest.
Youngstrand is responsible for the daily culinary operations of the property’s fine dining restaurant, while overseeing a team of professionals.
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, he has accumulated 29 years of culinary experience. He was Chef at the property’s Fresh Harvest restaurant for two years before moving to NYY Steak.
Prior to joining Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, Youngstrand spent six years in Las Vegas where he worked for the Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa & Casino and Twin Creeks Steakhouse in the Silverton Casino.
With 25 years of restaurant experience, Weiberg has held positions in Kingsland, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. He has owned and operated his own highly successful restaurant and for the past four years has been the 1st Street Deli Chef.
Born in Los Angeles and raised in Chicago, Weiberg is a Johnson & Wales graduate. After moving to South Florida, he was able to include a variety of cultural cuisines in his everyday cooking styles, which included Latin and Caribbean flair.
Weiberg’s real passion is connected to Italian culture and food. Working his first job as a dishwasher in an Italian restaurant, he remembered how amazing the restaurant would smell each day, while being intrigued by the Chef’s pride in everything that he prepared.
Also a graduate of Johnson & Wales, Campbell has been connected to Seminole Gaming since 2007 when he was the Sous Chef at Fresh Harvest in Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and later the Sous Chef for EE-TO-LEET-KE Grill at Seminole Casino Immokalee.
Prior to joining Seminole Gaming, Campbell was the Executive Sous Chef at both the Fort Lauderdale Airport Wyndham Hotel and the Fort Lauderdale Hilton Resort. Additionally, he was the Executive Chef at St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens.
