Featured Chef, Marc Dym
Five star chef Marc Dym was named Executive Chef at Little River Inn in 2006. While past cooking jobs posted him in Texas, Iowa and Pennsylvania - as well as Antigua, Zurich and Tel Aviv - this move was just around the bend. With high Zagat ratings over the past four years, last year he earned the Top Food Ranking for the entire country. Prior to moving to the Mendocino Coast in 1998, Dym was chef at the posh Ritz Restaurant in Newport Beach. A chance to escape the presses of city living lured him to this secluded stretch of the northern California coastline, which he now calls home.?? For Chef Dym, Little River Inn offers the best of both worlds. Dym relies on his classical Culinary Institute of American training to create dishes that are at once familiar and modern.
