GROSSE POINTE YACHT CLUB

The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club (GPYC), in Grosse Pointe Shores, has appointed Colby Newman as their new executive chef. Newman, formerly the executive chef at Amarillo Country Club, specializes in modern farm-to-table cuisine.

“I’m​ ​looking​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​bringing​ ​my​ ​style​ ​of​ ​food​ ​to​ ​such​ ​a​ ​well-respected​ ​club,”​ ​says Newman.​ ​“GPYC already​ ​has​ ​a​ ​great​ ​culinary​ ​program,​ ​so​ ​my​ ​goal​ ​is​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​taking​ ​it​ ​to​ ​the​ ​next​ ​level.​ ​GPYC​ ​is​ ​known as​ ​a​ ​top​ ​yacht​ ​club​ ​in​ ​the​ ​country,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​the​ ​food​ ​always​ ​matches​ ​the​ ​standards​ ​of being​ ​a​ ​premiere​ ​club.

​ ​We​ ​have​ ​so​ ​many​ ​members​ ​who​ ​travel​ ​and​ ​dine​ ​at​ ​some​ ​of​ ​our​ ​country’s​ ​best clubs​ ​and​ ​restaurants,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​them​ ​with​ ​the​ ​same​ ​dining​ ​experience​ ​right​ ​here​ ​in their​ ​own​ ​hometown.”

Newman studied French cuisine at Scottsdale Culinary Institute in Arizona. He has since studied under chef Lidia Bastianich, worked in a farm-to-table concept, and owned his own Asian restaurant.

​“I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​GPYC​ ​for​ ​a​ ​long time,”​ ​says Newman.​ ​“I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​to​ ​build​ ​upon​ ​the​ ​amazing​ ​team​ ​I​ ​already​ ​have​ ​here​ ​at​ ​the​ ​Club.”
