After working at IHG properties in Beirut, Frankfurt, Dubai, and Tehran, he came to the InterContinental Miami, where he was promoted to Executive Chef and has remained for more than 20 years. In celebration of the chef’s 40th anniversary of service with InterContinental, InterContinental Miami officially launched “Table 40,” a new chef table named to honor Alex Feher. On October 6, 2010, an array of personalities and community leaders including the mayor of Miami, gathered at Table 40 for the inaugural dinner to celebrate Alex’s 40th anniversary as well as InterContinental Miami’s 25th anniversary. Chef Alex prepared an extraordinary menu paired with superb wines.

Throughout his distinguished career, Chef Alex Feher has received numerous awards and honors, beginning with an Olympic gold medal in culinary skill in 1976 at the Culinary Olympics in Frankfurt, Germany. In 1995 and 1999, he was awarded the Chef of the Year Award for New York’s tri-state area as well as being honored with a “Grand Maître du Gout “ (Grand Master of Taste) by Chefs In America, for whom he had served as culinary director at their awards presentation at Carnegie Hall.

Inside InterContinental Miami’s Indigo restaurant, Table 40 offers a unique communal spirit for diners seeking an intimate culinary experience. Seating up to 14 people, this unique chef’s table is located next to Indigo’s kitchen where you will be in the heart of all the action. Guests can enjoy a glass of sommelier-selected wine while watching the main line-cook station bustle with activity as the chefs prepare their spectacular dishes.
