For Dino, life as a Chef all started with his mother. She was a single working mom and Dino would prepare dinner for her and his two sisters on weeknights. His experience created a passion for food that he didn’t realize until he started as a dishwasher for the Lobster Shop on Ruston Way and realized that the kitchen was where he belonged. He graduated South Seattle Community College with a degree in Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management, with an emphasis on classical French training. After working at several restaurants, he became the Executive Sous Chef for Tacoma Country & Golf Club. Following, he became the Executive Chef for Canterwood Country & Golf Club, where he expanded his repertoire and prepared a wide variety of cuisine. Now at The Mantel, Chef Dino is excited to share his passion for great food with the Trilogy and Dining Members.

For many in our Trilogy communities, wine culture is a critical part of the experience. Understanding this, all Trilogy communities have organized wine clubs and events, and most have gone so far as to include private wine lockers. The Barrel Masters program allows Members to secure preferred wine pricing and access to special wine events and, where possible, their own private wine locker as well.
