Larry Finn is the executive chef of Scala’s Bistro, at Kimpton’s historic Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

He is responsible for the menus at Scala’s Bistro, as well as the banquet and in-room menus for the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, and oversees the entire kitchen staff. As the executive chef, Larry will be bringing Scala’s Bistro back to its Italian roots, and will continue to focus on ingredients from local farmers, ranchers, fishers and purveyors. Most recently, Larry was the chef de cuisine for Masaharu Morimoto at Morimoto New York City. There he oversaw the kitchen operations, created daily specials, and organized events from Iron Chef battles to charity events. Larry started out his career at Union Square Café as the kitchen manager. It was there he first got his taste of seasonal farmer’s markets, and working closely with farmers and artisans.
