Joe Vasiloff
Executive Chef - Café Pinot

Oklahoma-born Joe Vasiloff brings a decade of fine dining experience to Café Pinot. He received his first lessons in cooking from his grandmother at the age of 11, a professional cook, who encouraged him to apply his creative juices to a culinary career. As a result, he attended the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, OR where he graduated with honors, followed by years of training in various kitchens, including Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bistro, Animal and Caramelized Creations, before coming to Patina Restaurant Group in 2011.

His approach to cooking is to keep it seasonal, honest and playful; and to blend unexpectedly bold flavors with traditional French fare. As a leader, Vasiloff enthusiastically fosters a team environment, "I enjoy the collaborative aspect of teams, bringing together diverse personalities into a family-like unit,” he says. “I constantly strive to generate positive energy, growing every day, evolving with the people around me and putting love into everything I do.”

When he’s not at work, the chef enjoys playing the guitar, and his musical tastes are as eclectic as the robust flavors found in his cuisine.
