As the head of the culinary team of Urban Tavern, Shantoja will oversee the development and execution of the restaurant’s comfort food breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

Chef Shantoja joins Hilton San Francisco Union Square culinary team from Boston. Shantoja began his career in the restaurant business at just 15 years old performing various kitchen tasks in a small Italian restaurant. For the next 16 years Shantoja continued working in fine dining restaurants including Mare, an organic costal Italian restaurant in Boston’s North End as well as Miel Brasserie Provençale at the Intercontinental Boston where he had the opportunity to learn classical French cuisine. These experiences have lead Chef Shantoja to experiment with seasonal and local products and develop a passion for sustainable cuisine. When he is not in the kitchen Chef Shantoja is browsing the local markets or following his passion for landscape photography.

“Great food starts with great ingredients,” said Chef Shantoja. “I am inspired by fresh, local flavors and look forward to continuing the restaurant’s tradition of offering simple and delicious dishes that truly highlight the tastes of Northern California.”

Urban Tavern is an exciting San Francisco gastropub located in the heart of the city that brings a seasonal menu and innovative atmosphere to the energetic Union Square area.
Here, people gather to dine with family and friends amongst a backdrop that combines urban form with country elegance, designed by Donna Scala and Gensler Architects.

“It is my sincere pleasure to welcome Chef Shantoja to our talented culinary team,” said Michael Dunne, general manager, Hilton San Francisco Union Square. “With its comfortable atmosphere and emphasis on fresh, regional fare Urban Tavern is the ideal place for Chef Shantoja to bring a new perspective to this beloved restaurant and take it to new heights.”
