Crossroads Hotel Appoints Aaron Wells-Morgan as New Executive Chef

USA, Kansas City, Missouri. September 26, 2022

Crossroads Hotel, Kansas City's hub for art, culture and cuisine, welcomes Chef Aaron Wells-Morgan as its new Executive Chef. Wells-Morgan's modern philosophy of the culinary arts coupled with his desire to nourish his community will provide guests of Crossroads Hotel with vibrant, flavorful dishes that accent the hotel's food and beverage concepts to deliver memorable culinary experiences. To begin his tenure at Crossroads Hotel, Wells-Morgan redesigned the dinner menu at the property's classic Italian restaurant concept, Lazia, taking traditional Italian cuisine and marrying it with Midwest influences, giving a new meaning to tradition.

A graduate of The Culinary Institute of America - New York, Chef Wells-Morgan brings over 20 years of hands-on experience to the role alongside a world of knowledge that encompasses a variety of cuisines and technical skills. In addition to being trained by Michelin-starred chefs, Wells-Morgan has held Executive Chef positions at some of the nation's finest dining establishments including Market at Meadowbrook, Les Bourgeois Bistro and Winery, Grand Street Dining and the award-winning Verbena.

"I am stoked to be in a kitchen where I am able to embrace the flavors I grew up loving and spin them in my own way," Chef Aaron Wells-Morgan says. "Missouri taught me how to nourish those that I love and culinary school taught me the skills I needed to be successful doing so. With each menu, I plan to do exactly that and make everyone feel at home when dining at Lazia and XR or unwinding at Percheron."

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
