Perry Lane Hotel, a cornerstone of luxury and elegance in Savannah, is thrilled to announce the appointment of Miguel Bautista as its new Executive Chef. Bringing a wealth of culinary experience and a fresh vision to the hotel’s dining services, Chef Bautista is set to elevate the culinary offerings across the hotel’s three food and beverage outlets and banquet services.


Chef Miguel Bautista’s journey into the culinary world began in his hometown of Miami, where he was drawn into the kitchen by necessity and began his career as a food runner. His passion for cooking was ignited by early family gatherings and has been honed through a diverse career path, including pivotal roles in a Jewish kosher restaurant, a coastal European establishment, and as a private chef for affluent figures. His profound respect for culinary arts was deepened while working under Chef Makoto, a former sous chef to the famed Chef Morimoto, at a renowned Japanese restaurant.


Miguel joined Perry Lane Hotel in 2022 as Chef de Cuisine and quickly proved himself as an indispensable leader in the kitchen, leading to his current promotion. His approach blends traditional techniques with innovative fusions, influenced by the diverse cultures and heritages of his culinary team. With a commitment to offering modern takes on French cuisine, Chef Bautista aims to create an unparalleled dining experience that reflects the spirit of Savannah while pushing the boundaries of culinary excellence.


“Miguel’s appointment as Executive Chef marks a significant moment for Perry Lane Hotel. His unique culinary style and vision align perfectly with our mission to provide guests with exceptional and memorable dining experiences,” said Matthew Douzuk, General Manager of Perry Lane Hotel. “We are excited to see how his creativity and leadership will continue to enhance our reputation as a premier dining destination in Savannah.”
