Meet Our Chef

Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center, an iconic Framingham hotel where old world charm meets contemporary comforts and exemplary service. 

Passionate, creative and artistic are just a few words to describe the Postern Grille’s new Executive Chef, Ken Williams.  Born and raised in New England, his joy for cooking began at the early age of eight cooking side by side with his family.  Some of his favorite recipes passed down include tomato wine, steacha and of course his grandfather’s ultra-thin pizzelle.

Taking his pleasure for cooking further, Chef graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2001.  He spent the next few years working his way up through the ranks at a blend of restaurants, hotels and resorts throughout the United States.  Ken worked most recently at the Westin Columbus as the Executive Chef.  Prior to that, he spent time as the Executive Sous Chef for CopperWynd Resort in Fountain Hills, Arizona where he fell in love with the Southwestern cuisine.

Though Ken tributes his appreciation for Southwestern cuisine to his time in Arizona, he also welcomes inspiration from Chef’s like Bayless and Colicchio.  While the Postern Grille is known for their contemporary interpretation of New England favorites, we guarantee Chef will delight your palate with just a hint of Southwestern heat.

Named Postern Grille after a postern or secondary door or gate in many castles, Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center embraces the castle-style theme throughout the hotel. A postern is often located in a masked location, yet Postern Grille is located just off of the lobby and invites all guests for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm. 

Personifying liveliness with warm, active colors in an unwinding atmosphere, the dark grey tiles and copper bar with marble counter in Postern Grille play to the luxurious materials often seen in historic castles. A separate chef’s table offers intimate group seating for up to 12 guests that provides an exclusive dining experience. Punches of black provide definition and contrast while an open kitchen sets the stage for an interactive experience for restaurant guests, luring patrons with vibrant energy.
