 Jordan Savell

ELEVATIONS NATION

Jordan Savell is a former first responder out of Ft. Worth, Texas, but soon realized her passion was in the culinary industry. She was previously sous chef at Eddie V’s in Ft. Worth and The Oceanaire Seafood Room in Dallas before making a run on Hell’s Kitchen Season 19 where she finished 7th out of 18 contestants.

Chef Jordan took her talent and started Bullfish Foods – Food Truck where she catered for some of the biggest events in Texas. Chef Jordan has recently moved to Las Vegas to assume the role of Food and Beverage Director of The Artisan Hotel. She will also serve as Executive Chef of the hotel’s up and coming new restaurant, opening early 2023.

Lee Villalun
ISLAND SUSHI and grill

Lee Villalun embodies the spirit of Aloha. Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, he grew up cooking with his father and grandparents. Throughout his childhood, they taught him both the fundamentals of cooking, from butchering livestock and filleting fish, as well as how to cook a wide array of classic Hawaiian, Filipino and Asian dishes.

 At 16, Chef Lee started his restaurant journey like many as a dishwasher, and over many years got a chance to experience many different front and back of house positions until realizing cooking was where his heart belonged all the time. His time with Island Sushi & Grill (ISG) began in 2011; in 2021 he celebrated his 10th anniversary with the restaurant by taking the reins as Executive Chef.
