Joey Elenterio’s culinary career has been fast and full of promotions. At the young age of 25, Elenterio was awarded One Michelin Star for his work at Chez TJ in Mountain View. This coveted award made him the youngest Chef in California and the youngest American-born chef to ever hold one. Elenterio’s preceding career was full of mentors. He credits Aram Mardigian with seeing his potential while at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant in 2004. He then worked for Rolland Passot as Executive Chef of Tanglewood before Chez TJ as Sous Chef under Scott Nishiyama in 2009, becoming Executive Chef in 2011. Later, he was included in Zagat’s 30 Under 30 Award. In 2012, Elenterio was featured in the SF Chronicle as a Rising Star Chef – an award given to five chefs that show extreme promise. Fulfilling this prophecy, Elenterio became Executive Chef of Tyler Florence’s Wayfare Tavern where he garnered a 3 star review from the Chronicle and a place on the top 100 restaurants in SF list. Not one to pass up an opportunity to be a partner in a jazz bar, Elenterio departed to open Mr. Tipple’s in 2015. Wanting to help create more, he joined Pali Hotels in 2017 to open 2 properties and over see their culinary arm, which included 3 already opened restaurants. Currently, he is using his many talents in French Fries and Caviar: a culinary driven consulting and collaboration firm he began last year. He is always learning and improving; benefits he finds abundant with the dynamic nature of the new clients and projects for FF&C. Elenterio can never know enough about the culinary world and will not be slowing down.
