Executive Chef Richard Selz
Richard Selz has always had a passion for food and cooking. At an early age he was at his mother’s side in the kitchen helping with family meals, rolling egg rolls for his sister’s bat mitzvah and using her easy bake oven when she wasn’t looking.
A 32-year veteran of the restaurant industry he began as a prep cook at Leslie Reis’s namesake restaurant in Evanston, Illinois and worked around the country and up the culinary ladder. From Chicago to Santa Fe to Minnesota’s North Woods, Richard uses classic techniques to create modern interpretations of traditional foods from around the world. Lake Superior influences Selz’s menu; it is a big rambunctious lake and the food needs to stand up to that.
He enjoys motivating people to be their best through positive energy. Well versed in front of the house and back of the house operations, Richard finds ways outside the box, to solve complex organizational challenges.
In his spare time, Richard likes to cook, watch bad movies and read good books.
Imagine an intimate dining space with sweeping views of Lake Superior from every table and the famous point from which Cove Point Lodge got its name. Add to the views a dining room with exquisite chef-inspired local fare, tables covered with crisp white linen tablecloths, candles and an extensive wine list and menu designed to satisfy your North Shore Experience. Enjoy a unique fine dining experience in an incredible setting, and filled with our down-home hospitality.
