Sheraton Dallas has welcomed Pierre Daval as the hotel’s new executive chef. Daval has more than 25 years of culinary experience, including 20 years with Marriott International. Originally from France, Daval started his culinary career in the United States at the Marriott Tan-Tar-A Resort in Missouri in 2000. His most recent role was at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort in Illinois as the executive chef and food and beverage director where he personally managed an apiary and a two-acre farm. He also previously worked at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare and the Chicago Marriott Downtown.

In his new position, Daval will lead all aspects of hotel food operations, including the hotel’s banquet facilities and four food and beverage outlets. 

“We are proud to have Pierre join Sheraton Dallas as Executive Chef and are confident his culinary passion and talent will provide amazing results to our dining outlets and banquet facilities,” says Frank Quant, Sheraton Dallas Hotel’s director of food and beverage. “We look forward to sharing his talent and delicious dishes with our guests as well.”

Event hosts can choose whether the view rotates or stays put.

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
