John Newman - Chef de Cuisine
We all need to nourish our bodies with food. The inherent beauty of ingredients and the techniques used to prepare them matter as much as the surroundings and company. This is chef John Newman’s philosophy. John has been cooking since age 18. He has a degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University and he has worked in cities from Chicago to Park City, where he was Chef de Partie at the Waldorf Astoria. John was the Sous Chef at the Tree Room Restaurant at Sundance Resort when they received four stars from Forbes and he brings years of experience and enthusiasm to our team at Communal. Chef Newman loves the connection he can make with guests when he is cooking in the open kitchen. Communal is a staple of the downtown Provo community and Chef Newman loves that he can be a part of it.
