Brazilian native Paula DaSilva joined the team at Burlock Coast at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale in Fall 2017 as Chef de Cuisine, bringing her imaginative farm fresh dishes, rich with the flavors of South Florida’s abundant flora and fauna to the kitchen. She was recently promoted to Executive Chef for the property, overseeing all culinary operations.

DaSilva began her professional culinary career at 3030 Ocean at the Harbor Beach Marriott. She also competed in the fifth season of Fox Network’s Hell’s Kitchen with Gordon Ramsey and finished as the season’s runner-up and fan favorite. In 2010, DaSilva took her talents to South Beach as the executive chef of 1500 Degrees at the illustrious Eden Roc Hotel. Her culinary skills at 1500 Degrees earned massive praise and wide-ranging appeal, including a nod from Esquire magazine as one of the “Best New Restaurants in America.”

Prior to joining The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale team, DaSilva served as Executive Chef and simultaneously oversaw all food and beverage operations for Artisan Beach House at The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour in Miami.
