By partnering with local businesses, exploring new cuisines, and collaborating with his team, Matt’s culinary vision will connect travelers with the spirit of Los Angeles as well as the flavors of European staples.

I’m excited to join the PS team to bring my passions together to inspire our guests as they begin their journey or provide warmth and familiarity to welcome them home,” said Matt Roman, Executive Chef at PS. “Different cultures and locations around the globe inspire me, and I like to explore connecting themes from different cuisines and then push those ideas through a filter of Californian seasonality with a personal touch.”
Signature dishes include hyper-seasonal and technically rich plates that are elevated, enticing, and available “to-go” for customers to enjoy within their Private Suite, The Salon, on the plane or indulge at home. From Pan Roasted Salmon to Herb Marinated Hanger Steak and the Chef’s signature style Beet Salad with pistachio and blackberries, Chef Matt brings comfort and warmth to guests traveling through PS by offering his own interpretation of the luxury travel experience.
“At PS, we are continuously enhancing all elements of the experience and, given the rebound in travel, we felt it apropos to celebrate by revisiting our food and beverage program. We wanted to work with someone who embodies all things LA – creative, warm, laid back, and elevated. We are thrilled to have Matt Roman on board as our new Executive Chef and look forward to sharing his talent with our Members. His menu will be a welcomed addition to our other culinary offerings like local favorite Alfred’s coffee, seasonal mixology cocktails, and sommelier-certified wine pairings.” – Amina Porter, Co-CEO at PS
