As the leader of our team, Chef Anthony has filled the kitchen with local talents that parallel his deep & unwavering passion for food. A native to New York, Chef Anthony has poured years of dedication into exploring ways to enhance his culinary abilities, most notably cooking in numerous award winning restaurants all over the world, including Europe, Asia & the United States. Anthony Alaimo found his calling to cuisine at a young age when he began working after school in Italian restaurants throughout his native New York City. In pursuit of a culinary career, he journeyed up the Atlantic coast, which not only enhanced his knowledge but also fueled his passion by allowing him to work with local ingredients in the bustling seafood industry of New England. It was there that his culinary skills emerged as he was mentored in the art of blending unique seasonal ingredients and traditional Italian flavors.
His culinary ambitions brought him through many notable kitchens throughout the United States and Europe, which ultimately led him to The Bellagio in Las Vegas where he went on to work at legendary restaurant Le Cirque with Sirio Maccioni’s team. Resort mogul Steve Wynn and the Wynn Resorts organization later presented Anthony with an opportunity to create an Italian restaurant in Macau, China where he then spent 9 years as the Chef de Cuisine. During his tenure at il Teatro at Wynn Macau, he and his team earned the most prestigious hallmark of a young chef’s career; a Michelin star in addition to multiple Forbes 5 star designations. His travels throughout Asia and abroad have finally brought him back to Los Angeles where he is able to share these experiences and his passion with his guests.
