Classically trained at the esteemed Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts in Providence, Rhode Island, Chef Andrew Reh served at the White House in Washington, D.C., the Ritz-Carlton in both Boston and Washington, D.C., and the McCamly Plaza Hotel in Battle Creek before returning home to Traverse City and joining Shanty Creek’s staff.

He oversees all Food & Beverage operations, leading a strong troupe of restaurant managers and sous-chefs. His genteel yet authoritative approach is evidenced by the previous awards including “Best Restaurant Staff” by readers of Traverse City’s Northern Express. In 2012, he received the “Culinary Star of the Industry” from the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association at the annual Governor’s Conference on Tourism.
