Cuisine at the Domaine
Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Chef Weist has been inundated in the Rocky Mountain Cuisine and lifestyle for his entire career.
As an avid skier and climber, Chef Weist spent many years in the picturesque ski town of Telluride, Colorado. Chef Weist worked as the Executive Sous Chef for the critically acclaimed Allred's Restaurant. Under Weist's direction, Allred's was highly honored as one of the country's “Best New Restaurants” by John Mariani and Esquire Magazine. He also led the Allred's team to a sold out benefit dinner at the James Beard House in New York City.
After leaving Allred's, Chef Weist spent a year as Chef Consultant and Guest Chef De Cuisine for Domaine Montangy in Burgundy, France. There Weist added to his repertoire the experience of using truly market fresh ingredients matched with world renowned wines of the great Burgundy regions.
Now Executive Chef for Sampling's Wine Bar & Restaurant in Frisco, Colorado, and The Cellar in Breckenridge, Colorado, Chef Weist defines his cuisine as contemporary American with major influences from southern France and northern Spain. Using only the freshest ingredients available, Chef Weist creates sophisticated plates with complex flavors, in a relaxing and casual yet service driven atmosphere.
