NEW ORLEANS - October 31, 2011 - The Bourbon Orleans Hotel announced today the appointment of Chef Robert Plouffe as executive chef for the 218-room boutique property in the French Quarter of New Orleans.  Plouffe will be responsible for kitchen staff leadership and banquet and restaurant food production at the property.

"We are delighted to welcome Chef Robert to the hotel," said General Manager Mark Wilson. "With 20 years of international kitchen and food preparation experience, Chef Robert is a creative, diligent and quality focused individual and will be a great asset to the Bourbon Orleans team, guests and clients."

Chef Robert's experience includes Pastry Chef Responsibilities at the new Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, and five years with executive positions within kitchens of the Hilton Luxury Collection in New Orleans Jamaica, & Fort Lauderdale.
