Islamorada’s Amara Cay Resort Appoints Chris Cash as Executive Chef
Resting along the Atlantic Ocean and immersed in the vibrant culture of the Florida Key's Islamorada, the casually redefined Amara Cay Resort proudly announces Chris Cash as executive chef. Bringing a passion for fresh Florida Keys style cooking, Cash will oversee the property's signature restaurant, Reelburger, along with food and beverage efforts for meetings and special event catering.
"We are thrilled to have Chef Chris join our team at Amara Cay Resort," said Miguel Waldo, general manager of Amara Cay Resort. "He is a natural leader and his innovative approach will no doubt elevate the food and beverage program."
Before joining Amara Cay Resort, Cash held various executive chef positions at a few notable Florida Keys restaurants, including Book Key Bar and Grill, Bumbys, OO-Tray, Bayside Gourmet and Morada Bay. Cash's responsibilities included menu development, staff recruitment and management while overseeing daily restaurant operations.
"I'm excited for this new role and the opportunity to expand Reelburger's menu beyond handcrafted burgers to offer additional Keys-inspired dishes," said Chris Cash, executive chef of Amara Cay Resort.
Inspired by Islamorada's claim to fame as the "Sport Fishing Capital of the World," Amara Cay Resort's signature restaurant, Reelburger, presents gourmet burgers, ocean-inspired cuisine and hand-cut meats. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Reelburger offers al fresco and indoor dining with creative craftsmanship focused on the food that also continues behind the bar with a well-rounded list of tiki and craft cocktails, specialty shakes, beer and premium wine.
Amara Cay Resort offers an oceanfront respite seamlessly blending recreation and relaxation with 110 well-appointed guest rooms and suites. A private, sundrenched beach dotted with palm trees and hammocks, a gorgeous zero-entry pool along with lawn games and non-motorized watersports create a personal, non-scripted journey for guests.
