Executive Chef Sonny Pache
Executive Chef

Chef Sonny Pache, Executive Chef of The Guild House, joined Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) in 2004. Prior to taking on the role, Pache was an integral part of the national Ocean Prime brand, working as the executive chef of Ocean Prime Philadelphia as well as Ocean Prime Dallas. He was even named Ocean Prime Executive Chef of the Year in 2018. Chef Pache then went on to open Del Mar SoCal Kitchen and Lincoln Social Rooftop as Executive Chef in 2019.

In college, Pache spent nights cooking for his college roommates who encouraged him to attend culinary school. He took their advice and started the culinary program at Columbus State Community College before landing an apprenticeship at the Columbus Fish Market. After working there for a year and a half, he accepted an offer to continue his apprenticeship at CMR’s fine dining concept, M. It only took eight months before he became M’s executive chef.

The skills Pache has learned over the past 15 years at CMR extend beyond food, impacting the way he works with his team. He says he learns something new from his co-workers every day and has a lot of faith in them.

“The more you trust your team, the more they trust you,” said Pache. “At the end of the day, if you can take care of people then they will take care of you.”
With so many years of experience, Chef Pache is excited for the opportunity to showcase his culinary skills in an environment as unique as The Guild House.
Outside of work, Pache enjoys fishing, being outdoors, watching movies and spending time with his wife Katie and dog Harley.

General Manager

Bethany Crawford, general manager at The Guild House, joined Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) in 2022. A native of Rochester, New York, she came to the company with years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry.

Crawford’s interest in the restaurant and hospitality industry came from her first job in a country club. “I fell in love with the level of service and connections built with members. That’s when I realized that true genuine hospitality is something special.”
“Surrounding myself with positive people and share in spreading compassion and leadership,” Crawford says has been her greatest lesson in her career. “The impact we have on people can be bigger than we realize in the moment.”

Crawford also shares advice to those interested in pursuing a career in restaurants and hospitality, “Remember what you love about hospitality and try not to lose sight of that. Tough shifts are tough, but the connections and strength built in the hard times is where you learn to grow. Don’t be scared to be outside of your comfort zone.”

Crawford resides in Powell, Ohio, with her husband, Austin, two kids, Izabella and Dominik, & two dogs, Ziva and Zilara. Outside of work, she enjoys cooking, yoga, climbing, and being outside. Her favorite CMR dish is the Oyster Mushrooms from The Guild House. In her new role, Crawford most looks forward to being a part of such an amazing leadership team and she’s excited about where they’ll go with their goals and execution.
