Executive Chef Michael Merilli at Adobe Grand Villas

Top on the list of memorable moments to savor at Adobe Grand Villas is the sumptuous gourmet breakfast offered every day and prepared by Executive Chef, Michael Merilli. Not only does Michael prepare fabulous gourmet morning feasts, he also serves as personal chef for our Adobe Grand guests.

Those who wish to have an intimate romantic dinner for two, groups or wedding parties can arrange to have Chef Michael prepare private meals as part of your unique experience here in Sedona, Arizona.

In keeping with the redefinition of a luxury bed and breakfast establishment, Chef Michael Merilli brings to the Adobe Grand Villas his culinary talents from years of experience at such distinguished New Orleans establishments as, Mr. B's, under chef Gerard Maras; Bistro at Maison de Ville with the late John Neal; and later at Peristyle. 
As owner and Executive Chef of Gauthier Market Cafe, Michael Merilli became well known for his "forthright expression in preparations" that were "creative yet not wildly unconventional."
