The Patina Group, who will operate the upcoming Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar, announced that Theo Schoenegger will become the Executive Chef of these Disney Springs additions.



This marks Schoenegger’s return to the Walt Disney Company as he formerly worked at Patina, located at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. During his time at Patina, Schoenegger earned the restaurant a 4-star rating, a Michelin star and a Relais & Châteaux rating.

He went on to become the Executive Chef at Sinatra in Las Vegas, an upscale Italian restaurant that served Frank Sinatra’s favorite dishes from when Schoenegger cooked for him in New York. Schoenegger has also greatly influenced New York’s Italian cuisine with his work at San Domenico and Palio.



Schoenegger’s ability to blend rustic, traditional Italian cuisine with elevated fine dining will suit the casual elegance of Maria & Enzo’s.

Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar are expected to open during Winter 2018.
