West Indies: Sereno Hotels has announced the appointment of Riccardo Ravaglia to food and beverage director of Le Sereno St. Barths.

In this role, Ravaglia will oversee the food and beverage operations of Le Sereno's culinary outlets including Restaurant Le Sereno. Ravaglia comes to St. Barths from New York City, where he held management positions at Harry Cipriani's, Sant Ambroeus and the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca.

The chef's classics, such as the Linguini Lobster, the Risotto al Gambero Rosso and the Veal Milanese will remain on the menu.

Samy Ghachem, managing director of Sereno Hotels, said: "Today is an exciting new era for the restaurant. I believe that we have some of the best cuisine on the island, the best views, the best location and amazing design, paired with a talented team both in the kitchen and in the front of the house. With the combined skill and command of chef Simone and Riccardo's longstanding experience working with the most notable Italian restaurants in New York, Le Sereno's time to shine is now and we look forward to sharing new experiences with our guests."
