Igor Krichmar

Appointed Executive Chef
At Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown - CA, USA

Igor Krichmar

As Executive Chef, Igor Krichmar takes the culinary and hospitality experience at InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown to new levels. With an extensive background in fresh and simple cuisine, Krichmar leads the culinary charge by crafting menus and spearheading the hotel's culinary mission, supervising kitchen staff and coordinating efforts in all dining outlets, as well as overseeing large-scale group and catering events in the property's nearly 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Krichmar draws much of his inspiration from his grandmother and can attribute his early culinary passions to the time spent in the kitchen watching her cook for the household. Upon graduating from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., Krichmar staged at The Fat Duck, a three Michelin star restaurant in Berkshire, England. Shortly after, he joined the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond Wynn Las Vegas where he worked alongside Chef Alessandro Stratta at his two Michelin star restaurant, Alex. In March 2017, Krichmar joined InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown as part of the pre-opening team, in the role of executive sous chef.
