“We’re excited to welcome Peter to our outstanding culinary team,” said Adam Duffey, General Manager for Fenway Hotel. “His fresh perspective and creativity will be a great benefit to Chef Clayton as they work together to further enhance the dining experience at HEW Parlor & Chophouse.”

Chea brings more than a decade of culinary experience to Fenway Hotel, including roles as Executive Chef at The Chateau Restaurant Group and Chef de Cuisine at Simply Gourmet Caterers.
