Winnipeg chef Alex Svenne has been named the executive chef at the Inn at the Forks.

Svenne, who, along with his wife Danielle, founded Bistro 7 1/4 and worked in many of the city's top restaurants, will head the hotel's banquet, catering, and room-service facilities as well as a new restaurant scheduled to open in September, a press release says.

"The new restaurant at Inn at the Forks will be about food, fun and community, and I look forward to the opportunity to cook in front of my guests and to get to know them through the dining experience," Svenne is quoted as saying in the release.

He takes over for Barry Saunders, who has become the executive chef of food service operations at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, where a 70-seat bistro is in the works.
