"We recently celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Villard Mansion at the NY Palace. We could not have chosen a more wonderful venue if we tried. We had 62 guests. Thanks to Billy P. for his expertise in planning the event & Kaan E. for helping to execute a dream wedding. The food was unbelievable & the venue was old world elegant and beautiful. Everyone was impressed by their surroundings. Thank you NY Palace for giving us the wedding of a lifetime."

Jacques Sorci

Executive chef

Executive Chef of Lotte New York Palace, Maitre Cuisinier de France, Jacques Sorci continues to lead the food and beverage team in culinary success, providing the hotel’s global guests with the finest in-room dining options and delicacies. Sorci joined the Palace team as part of the hotel’s $140 million renovation in 2013, bringing with him an extensive culinary portfolio and over 30 years of experience in the industry.

Since childhood, Sorci knew he would follow a career path with an emphasis in food and culinary arts. In his early years, Sorci spent many hours in the kitchen learning about traditional Italian flavors and dishes including homemade pasta, raviolis and canolis. As Sorci developed as a chef, he continuously incorporated an Italian flare into many of his dishes. Additionally, he is a big advocate for simple and seasonal food that can be appreciated by all types of palettes. In his previous position, Sorci served as the Executive Chef at the highly acclaimed, The Carlyle New York, A Rosewood Hotel, where he was responsible for all culinary operations onsite. Prior to that, Sorci worked with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company for close to twenty years at a variety of properties, most recently at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park where he was the Executive Chef and Director of Food and Beverage. Additional Ritz-Carlton properties include The Ritz-Carlton, Marina Del Rey (Executive Chef), The Ritz-Carlton, Tyson’s Corner (Executive Chef), The Ritz-Carlton, Huntington (Executive Sous Chef), The Ritz-Carlton, Aspen (Restaurant Chef), and The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta (received training for Aspen). Sorci has extensive international experience as well, such as his tenure as Chef de Partie with the Noga Hilton International hotel in Geneva, as Demi Chef de Partie at Michelin Star-rated restaurant La Perle du Lac in Geneva, and as Pastry Chef at the Michelin Star-rated Restaurant Salomon in Montmelian, France.

Jacques Sorci received his culinary education at The Hotel School of Thonon les Bains where he completed training at the Five-Star Le Grand Hotel in Cabourg, France, and the Five-Star Brussels Hilton in Belgium. Sorci’s professional career began in France and Switzerland, where he worked 2 with Michelin-rated La Perle du Lac in Geneva, and with Maitre Cuisinier de France, Jean Salomon in Montmelian.

In 2003, Chef Sorci was inducted into the Maitre Cuisiner de France – a designation bestowed only upon 19 chefs in New York and 65 chefs nationwide. The elite members of Maitre Cuisiner de France are selected through a strict review process that takes into account the chef’s restaurant experiences, technical expertise, business qualifications and cultural standing in the culinary community. In addition to English, Sorci is also fluent in Spanish and French.
