The Russian River Resort is very proud to announce that with the recent promotion of Mary Durham, there is one more to the small group of female Executive Chefs in West County. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, Mary spent twenty-five years in the mortgage business before deciding to go to culinary school.

Chef Mary believes in using the fresh local ingredients from Sonoma County to make food that people really love to eat at reasonable prices. I want people to feel like this restaurant is their kitchen away from home, so weve worked hard to lower the price point but keep the portion size and the high quality ingredients the same. Were calling it Back to Basics. But dont worry the Pork Chop is still on the menu!

We are thrilled to have Mary as our new Executive Chef. Her efficiency with her new menu, which has local favorites from our menus from the last three years and many new dishes, has allowed us to lower the price of nearly everything we serve. We are very proud to be associated with such a talented and dedicated chef, and we think the local community will love what she is doing even more so at the new lower prices.
