Canopy by Hilton San Francisco appoints Executive Chef, Michelle Mathews

submitted by Tanner Culbertson, MCA Group

Canopy by Hilton San Francisco SoMa announces the appointment of Michelle Mathews as the hotel’s Executive Chef. In this role, Chef Mathews will oversee the culinary operations of three onsite food and beverage outlets: Shelby’s Rooftop, The Social, and Bean Bar, as well as lead the hotel’s social catering program.

Born in Okinawa, Japan, Chef Mathews spent a significant portion of her childhood traveling the world, influenced by the unique flavors of Spain, France, East Asia and Morocco. Drawing inspiration from her multicultural background, Chef Mathews aims to bring her global experiences to the forefront of the hotel’s food and beverage programs, keeping the menus elevated yet approachable.

“Drawing inspiration from the diverse flavors I’ve discovered on my global culinary journey, and fueled by my commitment to sourcing local ingredients, my goal is to curate an unforgettable dining experience for our guests,” said Chef Mathews.

At Shelby’s Rooftop, a sophisticated retreat that offers 270-degree views of downtown San Francisco, Mathews intends to provide an elevated dining experience that caters to a diverse range of palates. Handcrafted cocktails will pair harmoniously with elevated dishes such as a ribeye steak, local whole fish, classic Paella Valenciana or a twist on a classic burger featuring a rich wagyu interpretation.

Chef Mathews will develop tasting menus at the hotel’s lobby bar, The Social; and oversee operations of Bean Bar, the hotel’s coffee and grab-and-go concept, offering beautifully prepared salads and sandwiches, and talented baristas that each bring their own unique styles and expertise to their crafts.

For more than 12 years, Chef Mathews has delighted San Francisco with her culinary expertise, having served as executive chef at several renowned establishments. Prior to moving to California, Chef Mathews honed her craft at iconic New York City restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park.

Located at 250 4th Street, Canopy by Hilton San Francisco SoMa is ideally situated for locals and visitors alike to experience the best of San Francisco’s top dining, cultural, arts, entertainment and shopping destinations.
