Biography of Chef Joshua Bianchi

Josh Bianchi is upstate NY native. After school, he began his career working his way through the brigades under some of the world’s best chefs throughout the East Coast before coming to Vegas. Since 2005, he spent several years at Wynn @ Daniel Boulud Brasserie and was the opening Chef @ Drai’s Beach Club.  After a few years, Josh missed cooking the ‘nicer’ ingredients in the professional kitchen and pursued the position Executive Chef @ Alize. 

  As the Chef in the former Alize space, Josh was persistent to connect with Marc Vetri and assisted Chef Marc opening Vetri Cucina Top of the Palms.  After several years of cooking, opening 3 restaurants, and r/d, Josh took a sabbatical due to family health issues.

At the beginning of the Covid, he began his small operation So Good LV, that services “in home Dining”, catering, and personal chef services for those with special dietary needs which has led him to cook for local celebrities, public officials and the Raiders.

  Josh has recently been doing “Pop ups” at the Vegas Test kitchen and servicing his bread-pasta kits at the Intuitive Forager farmer’s market.

He spends his spare time with his wife, 2 kids and has been studying  Jiu jistu for the past 10 years under Mica Cipilli @ Gracie Humaita and is a brown belt practitioner.
