Congratulations to Shawn La Sage
We are thrilled to announce Shawn La Sage as our General Manager at The Restaurant at Meadowood.
Born in Lockport, New York, Shawn La Sage was raised in a military family and was quickly drawn to the work ethic and pace of restaurants. He started working in restaurants while in high school, eventually working his way through different culinary and service positions until he had the opportunity to assist in opening several wine bars in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
Shawn was instrumental in the management of the downtown Napa restaurant, Zuzu, and later assisted with the opening of La Taberna under the same ownership. After several years of working in Napa, Shawn joined The Village Pub in Woodside after relocating with his family to Portola in 2014. The following year, he was hired as a captain at Manresa, joining the team as they earned a third Michelin star in 2016.
After two years working at Manresa, Shawn returned to Napa where he was hired as a captain at The Restaurant at Meadowood. Following more than a year and a half of dedicated work, Shawn moved into the position of Service Manager in 2019, and one year later was again promoted to General Manager in early 2020.
In his free time, Shawn and his wife are working to renovate their historic Napa home and enjoying family time with their son, Leo.
“Shawn has been training in some ways for this role for a long time. He possesses the rigor and attention to detail requisite to operate at the level we want, but also has the humanity necessary to build the culture going forward.” –Chef Kostow
