Meet the Chef
Carina Fleetwod, Chef D' Cuisine
Our banquets group inherited a burst of wholesome goodness when Quad Cities native Carina Fleetwood joined after spending two years at Robert's Buffet as Chef D' Cuisine. Having learned how to cook authentic Mexican and Italian food from her mother, who worked at a restaurant when she was growing up, Carina fell in love with the kitchen very young. At 13, she got her work permit and she's been doing her dream work ever since! Taught by some of the top chefs from around the world, she now enjoys bringing her own flair to the (dining) table and opening guests' palates up to new foods. Her Latin heritage means she's very comfortable both in the kitchen and on the dining floor, building relationships with Rhythm City guests. For Carina, cooking is more than just a meal; her craft is her pride and her guests become her family. Fun Facts: Cooking inspiration: Mom; Favorite cuisine: Authentic Latin/Mexican/Cuban; Least favorite food: Mayonnaise; Years cooking: 28; Previous experience: Radisson, Granite City, The Isle of Capri
