Executive Chef Chris Cummer

The Andaz Savannah is thrilled to announce Christopher Cummer as the new Executive Chef of 22 Square Restaurant and Bar at the Andaz Savannah. Chef Chris comes to Savannah from the Andaz Wall Street, and takes the helm of the culinary team from Chef John Maffei, who recently moved back to New York City.

Chef Chris has more than 20 years’ experience within the hospitality industry and has worked and traveled throughout the United States. Along the way, he has been influenced by Italian, French, Texas, Southwestern, and Farm to Fork cuisine. His travels indulged his love of history and discovering new cultures, however his passion remains with Southern foods, flavors and traditions. At the Andaz Savannah, Chef Chris combines his love of food to develop menus using products that are native to the Southern region and are farmed, raised, and harvested nearby.

“The Andaz Savannah is nestled in Savannah’s historic district, and I’m thrilled to join the team and help continue telling its stories and creating memories,” said Executive Chef Chris Cummer. “My journey with food first started when I was a child growing up in Louisiana.  However, the real journey started when I took my first job as a line cook in my high school years at a basic scratch Italian restaurant just outside of Houston.  Growing up in the TV dinner generation, I didn't have much exposure to what food could really be.  While I really enjoyed my experience there, I saw cooking more as a hobby.”

Chef Chris is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the dining operations for the hotel’s 22 Square Restaurant and Bar as well as Meetings and Events food operations.
