Chef Fernando Cruz new

Chef Fernando Cruz

Fernando Cruz, Culinary Director at 1 Hotel South Beach, was born and raised in Ponce, Puerto Rico and first fell in love with the chemistry in a kitchen and the hospitality industry as a teen. After graduating from college, Cruz worked on a farm for a year where he did everything from raising chickens to milking cows. Through this hands-on experience, Cruz found his deep respect for farmers and agricultural technology, and grew to understand the connection chefs can make with the ingredients they use.

Four years ago, Cruz joined 1 Hotel South Beach and with time, his responsibilities expanded from overseeing WATR to leading the culinary teams for the hotel's banquet, pool cabanas, Plnthouse, Habitat and all of the F&B workings in between. He used his past connections from interning in Spain and adventures in America to build a strong team of unique skillsets. According to Cruz, "a good team is everything."
