About Us

Executive Chef & Owner, Michael Kotecki

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Michael loves creating unforgettable meals and pays acute attention to the preparation of every course from start to finish. Attending the Culinary Institute of America and graduating in 1982, Michael was soon after recruited by the Hilton hotel chain as an Opening Chef. He was a part of their corporate opening team, traveling across the United States from 1985 to 1989. Following this, Michael began a catering business out of his mother’s basement, named Particular Parties. He then went on to run the VFW Buddy Knaus Post on Broadway and Transit in Lancaster, New York.

It wasn’t until the end of 1989 that Kotecki’s Grandview Grove was established at 4685 Seneca Street in West Seneca. Looking forward twenty-five years later, Michael attributes success to one very special element—his family. Still playing a large role in the operation and maintenance of the facility, the Kotecki family takes great pride in their success.
