Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa / Current & Tides – Executive Chef  

With a passion for good food and great company, Chef Michael Poompan brings his experience and award-winning passion for utilizing the best  in local ingredients to all his dishes at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa.  Poompan’s goal is to have his fare strike a connection with the local community and hopes to provide an atmosphere that garners locals and travelers to mix and mingle on a regular basis. This focus allows him to work closely with fresh foods from California’s local farmers, ranchers and food artisans to establish creativity in all his dishes and helps distinguish himself as a culinary artist.
 

When Poompan is not in the kitchen he is passionate about giving back to his community. He was invited to Washington D.C. for a kickoff event with Michelle Obama for the Chefs Move to Schools program and serves on the board of management for the YMCA of San Diego youth and family services and the Red Shoe Society for the Ronald McDonald House.
