Trump SoHo New York Promotes New Executive Chef


More good news for New York's food scene: Trump SoHo New York has promoted Desmond Lim to executive chef.

In his new role, Lim will oversee the banquet and in-room dining operations for the hotel, and will facilitate the use of the hotel's new organic rooftop herb garden, which includes basil, chive, cilantro, oregano, rosemary and sage. (The cilantro is used poolside in Bar d'Eau favorites such as the guacamole and spicy tuna tartar.) A signature in-room dining dish, skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, uses the garden's parsley and oregano.

Lim began his career at Trump SoHo more than two years ago as executive sous chef where he was responsible for food menu planning in all outlets and for training of all new and current line associates. Previously, he spent four years in Las Vegas as the banquet sous chef at The Bellagio Resort and Casino, and as the chef de cuisine at Rao's. Lim started his career in New York City, and is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute.
