UPDATED — Another person in what’s been a string of Ambassador Hotel employees coming and going – from the general manager on down – is gone.
This time, it’s executive chef Marshall Roth, who moved to Wichita to open the downtown hotel’s Siena Tuscan Steakhouse.
“We kind of just parted ways,” Roth says. “I need to do what’s right for myself, and they need to do what’s right for the hotel.”
Hotel owner Paul Coury says he’s a huge Roth fan.
“He’s a great guy,” Coury says.
Roth says he came to Wichita to be his mother’s caretaker. He says he recently was looking to hire more nurses for his mother. Now, he says, he won’t have to.
“I’m going to be taking care of my mom.”
Coury says Roth’s schedule of caring for his mother sometimes conflicted with his schedule at the restaurant.
