Chef Javier Chavez - Restaurateur, Head Chef
“FOOD IS MY MOTIVATION. SUCCESS IS MY COMPANY. COMBINING THE TWO IS MY RECIPE.” – Chef Javier Chavez
Chef Javier was raised in El Paso, Texas where his passion for cooking was undeniable. He studied Culinary Arts at the Art Institute in San Antonio. His determination and passion led him to relocate to Paris, France to broaden his skills. There, he graduated from Le Cordon Bleu with The Grande Diplôme for cooking and baking classical French cuisine. He quickly relocated to Las Vegas where he started working at Postrio with Wolfgang Puck. Chef Javier quickly advanced and landed his first Executive Chef position at Tremezzo at the young age of 25. He continued expanding his knowledge into other cuisines while working at Vic and Anthony’s at the Golden Nugget, Mi Casa at The Silverton, Mercadito at Red Rock Resort, Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq and Whist Stove at The District at Green Valley Ranch.
In 2015, Chef Javier opened his first restaurant, Kitchen Table, carefully crafting his concept of “A Social Eatery” where customers could come together, converse and enjoy a style of cooking typically only found on the Las Vegas Strip. Chef Javier presents his French techniques, Latin flavor profiles, and unique restaurant concept to form a unique breakfast, lunch and brunch dining experience in the suburbs of Henderson, Nevada. Due to the overwhelming success of Kitchen Table, Chef Javier launched his second concept, Kitchen Table Squared at The Gramercy, where he broadens his Latin and European breakfast and brunch offerings to include a sophisticated, yet approachable dinner service.
