Perry Lane Hotel has announced the appointment of Daniel Herget as their new Executive Chef. Herget will oversee all culinary endeavours at the hotel, including the banquets department.
Herget is a veteran chef with 20 years in the industry. Originally from Gainesville, Florida, he began working in kitchens as a teenager and attended Johnson and Wales, acquiring dual degrees in culinary and pastry arts in 2009. Following his graduation, Herget assumed the position of Sous Chef for Goldman properties, where he served at several Miami hotspots, including La Goulue, Wish, Joey’s, and Wynwood Kitchen and Bar.
In 2015 Daniel ventured to Nashville, Tennessee, where he acted as the Culinary Director for an independent restaurant group, opening several establishments from Otaku Ramen to Little Octopus. Just one year later, Herget accepted the position of Executive Chef for the Noelle Hotel, where he curated all culinary offerings for the hotel along with the flagship restaurant, Makeready Libation and Liberation. His experience at Noelle sparked a passion for hotels which led him on the path to be at the helm of properties such as The Standard Spa Miami Beach, The Mansion on Forsyth Park, and now, the Perry Lane Hotel in Savannah, Georgia.
Herget grew up travelling and was enthralled by the flavours from each culture he became submerged in. He fell in love with the beauty of culinary arts. He understood that regardless of where he was in the world, food has an incredible ability to bring people together, which is precisely what Herget intends to do at the Perry Lane Hotel. Herget plans to create a dining experience unparalleled to any other in the city and is beginning by revamping the menus to feature elevated dishes and incorporating a greater variety of offerings that cater to dietary preferences and restrictions. Perry Lane’s main restaurant, the Emporium Kitchen, will take the guest on a culinary adventure, celebrating locally sourced ingredients while presenting them through a worldly lens.
