Chef Ari Nieminen

About Executive Chef Ari Nieminen

Born in Finland and raised on a lakeside farm, Nieminen fished in pristine lakes, picked berries and grew vegetables for the table. This instilled in Chef Nieminen a culinary purity that has guided him from the simply prepared dishes of his youth to the sensual feasts he now creates as Executive Chef at The Garden City Hotel. " Early on, I learned the importance and value of preserving the integrity of ingredients. Learning how to cook with and preserve all foods harvested for winter, including fruit, berries and mushrooms is crucial to my skills."stated Chef Nieminen. Nieminen trained at the culinary institute and worked at top-rated NYC Restaurants. Nieminen runs a well staffed kitchen at The Garden City Hotel’s Polo Steakhouse, specializing in prime dry-aged steak and sustainably sourced seafood, local and seasonably produce and herbs from the Hotel’s Garden. Chef Ari manages the cuisine at the restaurant as well as for our weddings, social gatherings and corporate dinners.
