About the Chef

Jose Rivas

The Villa Roma Resort, located in the Sullivan Catskills of New York State, is honored to welcome our brand new Executive Chef, Jose Rivas, to our upstairs main dining room. Having started his culinary education locally at Sullivan County Community College he fits right in here at the Villa Roma. Changes are already being seen as he restructures the kitchen. Born in El Salvador he came to the United States when he was just six, his family helped him into the field, and as he grew older he became more and more passionate about the kitchen. He started paying attention to the chefs at The Raleigh Hotel where he started as a dishwasher, and became impressed and inspired by their ability to create meals with such passion and strived to do the same.

He climbed the ladder at The Raleigh Hotel and soon took on his first position as Executive Chef in 2004. From there, he traveled to Las Vegas with his wife to work at the Flamingo Resort as a Sous Chef. Coming back to New York State he started a family and had three lovely children. Jose currently resides with his family locally in Monticello. He continued his passion at places such as The Nevele Grand Hotel, Camp Echo, Hudson Valley Resort, and Honor’s Haven, all located in New York. He loves creating so much that if he weren’t involved with food he would use his skills of precision to become a carpenter and build houses. Though he loves the kitchen his advice to people that aspire to be a chef would be, be cautious. The kitchen has become his life, and he gives it everything he has, one must learn to balance their life when you work in the kitchen. He believes that every dish that leaves his kitchen should look as though it was made for your own personal wedding day.

With summer just around the corner, The Villa Roma Resort will be buzzing as always. As a guest of the hotel or just as a local resident in the area, we welcome you to visit and try our new taste at all of our food outlets, from our poolside grill to our up class main dining room. Enjoy.

The Villa Roma Resort is proud to announce that local photographer Rich Klein, author of The Catskills of Sullivan County: A Photography Journey, has fine art prints on display and for sale inside Eleanor’s Country Kitchen.

Klein, a resident of Jeffersonville who also lived in Bethel for a decade, will be displaying photographs from his 2016 book as well as other more recent works that show the beauty of Sullivan County’s Catskills.

He started Rich Klein New York Photography in 2013 and since then has shot events for organizations like the Sullivan County Visitors Association and the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce. Klein has also taken photos for The Fat Lady Café in Kauneonga Lake where some of his prints will soon be on display and The Downtown Barn in Liberty. He has also been hired to shoot engagement sessions, outdoor weddings, maternity/newborns, boudoir and also enjoys street and concert photography. Since 2017, Klein has worked as a freelance photographer/reporter for The Sullivan County Democrat.

Klein grew up in Massapequa Park, Long Island. In 2014, he coauthored his first photography book, Massapequa: A Pictorial History Through The Eyes of Baby Boomers. That led to a pair of permanent displays in his hometown – one at an urgent care center and the other at the Massapequa Public Library — plus 20 month-long exhibits in Nassau County during 2015-16.
