Chef Grandinetti is widely respected as one of the very best in the field of catering for his creative vision and flawless execution. He carefully crafts each catering menu, making events at Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar always remarkable.

The Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen and Bar is delighted to announce that a new Private Events Specialist has joined their team.

Séverine Utiger was born and raised in Switzerland, before moving to England to go to college where she graduated with a BA (hons) in Media studies with a major in radio production. After working for a radio production and the English Football Association, she moved Portugal for three years, and then moved to North Carolina in 2008 to head the sales & marketing department for Oceanico Group USA.

Séverine is an experienced multilingual events, sales and marketing manager. After her move to Pinehurst, she started a career in the hospitality industry and has worked for Hilton, Marriott and IHG.

After 11 years in Pinehurst, Séverine recently moved to Winston-Salem as is very excited to be part of the community. She has quickly come to love Winston-Salem and the juxtaposition of new and old coming together.

“I feel very strongly about the way Winston-Salem has managed to maintain its heritage and reinvent itself at the same time. The development of the Innovation Quarter is very exciting but I also love the fact that existing buildings have been repurposed rather than demolished and rebuilt.”

With this in mind, working at Spring House is a dream come true. “This property is a perfect mix of everything I love. Every day I get to work in a beautiful setting and organize events which is my passion!”

Séverine would love to help you book your events at Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar so please contact her at
